An extended range of technical clothing will also be available online to athletes wishing to broaden their Elite Cymru wardrobe.

Élite Cymru golf star and recent US Open debutant, Rhys Davies from Bridgend is one of the current crop of athletes set to benefit from the range (pictured below).

Davies will this weekend be stepping out on the fairways of the Royal County Down Golf Club alongside fellow Élite Cymru stablemates Llewellyn Matthews (Bridgend) and Nigel Edwards (Caerphilly) as part of the Great Britain and Ireland team battling for the prestigious Walker Cup (September 8-9 2007).

The 2007 tournament will be a landmark event for golf in Wales as it will be the first time that the Principality will have three representatives taking to the greens when it tees off in early September.

Their achievements are testament to the impact that Élite Cymru support has had on their respective burgeoning sporting careers.
