The Story of the VIth British Empire & Commonwealth Games

Welsh Athletics are delighted to announce that we have a limited number of 'The Story of the VIth British Empire & Commonwealth Games' booklets, written by Clive Williams, on offer to those who may be interested in receiving a copy. 

The booklet provides a detailed description of the British Empire and Commonwealth Games held in Cardiff back in 1958, and was produced to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Games being held in Wales. It includes specific content regarding how the Games came to Wales as well as full results lists from the Games and a copy of the iconic speech by Queen Elizabeth. 

Back in 2008, the Welsh Athletics Hall of Fame dinner was a celebration of the Games and there were over 20 members of the 1958 Wales Commonwealth Games team present. 

Those interested in receiving a copy of the booklet should e-mail adam.bitchell@welshathletics.org or contact our main office number on 02920 644870
