Dai Greene beats Rhys Williams in British championship final
Dai Greene beats fellow Welshman Rhys Williams in the 400m hurdles at the British championships on Saturay
Dai Greene moved a step closer to finding form in time to mount a defence his world title in Moscow with victory at the Sainsbury’s British championships.
Greene, who claimed the 400m hurdles world crown in 2011, beat fellow Welshman Rhys Williams
with a season’s best run of 48.66seconds in Birmingham.
The 27-year-old was at the Alexander Stadium in a bid to find form, having qualified for next month’s World championships by virtue of being the reigning champion.
And he was pleased with the execution of his performance that left Williams in second despite a personal best, though he too has qualified for Moscow.
“I haven’t been in top form so far and it was a really close race and exciting for the neutral so I was pleased to come away with victory,” he said.
“I felt I went out fairly aggressively. Probably the middle part of my race was a bit slow so I pushed on a bit and managed to pick up a bit of speed and finished it off well.
“I need to carry on doing what I am doing in training – my times are coming down – and I know I will be in the right shape for Moscow.”
