DAI GREENE is hop­ing to make the Welsh team for the Com­mon­wealth Games next year de­spite only hav­ing raced a hand­ful of times in the past four years.

Greene won Com­mon­wealth and Euro­pean gold medals in the 400m hur­dles in 2010 be­fore tak­ing the world ti­tle in 2011. But he will turn 32 dur­ing the Com­mon­wealth Games next year and has strug­gled with in­jury in re­cent years.

“I feel that since I’ve been away, the 400m hur­dles hasn’t moved on,” he said. “I’ve seen peo­ple qual­ify for fi­nals a lot slower than what I was run­ning when I was near my best. So I look at that and think I can still com­pete with these guys.”
