400m hurdler, representing Team Wales at the Commonwealth Games
Standing as the current European Champion of the Men’s 400m discipline, Rhys Williams will have every right to fancy his chances of adding to his impressive career medal haul in this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Originating from Cardiff, Rhys Williams’s finest achievement to date was that of taking Gold in Helsinki in 2012 European Athletics Championships, making up for the misfortune he suffered four years earlier as he was forced to miss the 2008 Olympics after suffering a stress fracture in his right foot.
Supported by the GLL Sports Foundation, a leading foundation that independently supports young sporting talent, Williams follows a strict regime training up to 6 days a week to get into shape and competition ready. Incorporating a mix of track workouts with gym sessions, Williams uses Technogym equipment, official fitness equipment supplier to the Commonwealth Games.
