Elite sport

Welsh athletes from Team GB 2012

For a small nation, we have produced World class athletes across a variety of sports.  This is down to our determination, world class facilities and top class sports practitioners. Our elite sportspeople are not just athletes, they include coaches, practitioners, psychologists; the whole team of people and support that it takes to help ensure an athlete can push their personal boundaries and succeed in their sport at the highest level.
