Cardiff-born hurdler Colin Jackson CBE is a national treasure and one of the most well-known athletes and sports broadcasters. An Olympic silver medallist and two-time World Champion, he went undefeated at the European Championships for 12 years and was a two-time Commonwealth champion. His world record of 12.91 seconds for the 110m hurdles stood for more than a decade.
Former Wales football captain Ashley Williams played more than 600 games during a 20-year professional career. Rising from non-League Hednesford Town, he played for Swansea, Everton, Stoke, Stockport and Bristol City. He was capped 86 times for Wales, many as captain, and was a hugely influential part of Wales’ Euro 2016 team which made it to the semi-finals.
Carmarthenshire-born Nigel Owens MBE is the most-capped referee in world rugby. Nigel was born and raised in Mynyddcerrig and, at the age of 16, he picked up a referee whistle. The rest is history. In 2015, he refereed the Rugby World Cup Final between New Zealand and Australia at Twickenham and refereed at his fourth consecutive Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019.
Amy Williams MBE won Olympic gold in Vancouver 2010 when she famously triumphed in the Women’s Skeleton. In doing so the former University of Bath athlete became the first British individual gold medal winner at a Winter Olympics for 30 years and the first British female individual Winter Olympics gold medallist since 1952.
