David Greene at the Olympic Games

In case you hadn't noticed the Olympic Games are now underway and the track and field events start on Friday 3rd August. Our very own David Greene has had the distinction and honor of being selected in the 400m Hurdles as well as being nominated as the Team GB captain of the athletics team. Everyone at Swansea Harriers wishes David the very best of luck. If you want to watch his races live on TV, the race times should he progress all the way to the final are:

Round 1 @ 11.15am Friday 3rd August.

Semi Final @ 7pm Saturday 4th August

Final @ Monday 8.45pm 6th August.

David has every chance progressing all the way to the final with his current form leading into the Olympics. The race will be screened live at the Swansea University Indoor Athletics Track on their brand new and especially installed TV. Many of the clubs members will be there watching and rumors are circulating that maybe a television company or two will be there to film club members watching the race live, if you would like to come along and join us.
