Welsh 400m hurdler Dai Greene will be captain of the Team GB athletics squad at the London Olympics, UK Athletics has confirmed today. The 26-year-old from Llanelli will lead the 78-strong team, having done so at the European Championships in Sweden last year.
"It is an incredible privilege to be asked to captain the British athletics team at any time, but to be given the honour at a home Olympics is just incredible", Greene said. "I believe that we can go out and do Britain proud and I intend to lead by example."
UK Athletics head coach Charles van Commenee: "Dai was a stand out for the London 2012 captaincy. He is a very professional athlete who is both liked and respected by the rest of the team."
Royal Mail says the seven post boxes in Wales painted gold to mark Olympic and Paralympic triumphs will remain so permanently.
