David Greene; Still Swansea Harriers Athletics Hero

It was another very close one but not quite close enough; no doubt you all watched the race, David Greene ran yet another world class time of 48.24 but it was 0.2 away from a Bronze medal in the Olympic 400m Hurdles final. David has been fantastic at the games and 4th place still makes him our number one athletics hero and one of the best hurdles in the world.
