Dynamic Dai is fourth in men's 4x400m relay
Welsh hero Dai Greene was once more pipped to the post in his bid for Olympic glory – this time in the men’s 4x400m relay.
Following a fourth place finish in the men’s 400m hurdles, Dai was not chosen for the qualifying heats of the relay and had to watch as his team mates secured a place in the finals. However, the athletics team captain was later drafted in to replace Nigel Levine and run in the final.
No medal for world champion Dai
But despite the combined best efforts of Greene and running mates Conrad Williams, Jack Green and Martyn Rooney, the British boys missed out on a medal by 0.13 seconds. Gold went to the Bahamas, silver to the USA and bronze to Trinidad and Tobago.
Greene ran in 45.5 secs, Williams 45 secs, Green 44.8 secs and Rooney 44.1 secs. Greene, who has never allowed himself to be beaten by his epilepsy, now has his sights set on Rio.
