Dai Greene and Darrell Maynard

Athlete: Dai Greene, ranked number one in the UK for 400m hurdles.

Coach: Darrell Maynard, Volunteer Coach for UWIC's Athletics Academy.

Coach from 2005 to 2007


Within a year Darrell coached Dai from unknown athlete to silver medallist at the European Juniors: 'I feel proud knowing I had a part in his development and success.'

Dai's since gone on to win gold at European U23 Champs, but hasn't forgotten his first coach: 'He instilled that good work ethic, which I still have to this day and i think that's really the main thing that's stood me in good stead for the rest of my career.'
