Wales is a nation that consistently punches above its weight in the world class sporting arena and athletics coaches are a shining example of this. Developing athletes to junior and senior elite international level is a significant achievement in any sport.
We are proud to be able to recognise and celebrate the achievements of coaches to elite Welsh athletes as we are Welsh coaches to elite athletes from other nations. The profiles highlighted in this section have all produced athletes capable of competing at the highest levels of our sport.
