HCC congratulates Wales’ golden wonder Geraint

Top Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas has been congratulated by Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales after striking Gold in the Commonwealth Games road race.

Geraint has been a firm supporter of Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef over the years, making personal appearances on the HCC stand at the Royal Welsh showground and taking part in a HCC organised competition encouraging children to adopt a healthy diet.

“I was delighted to watch Geraint win the Commonwealth Gold medal in the road race,” said HCC Chief Executive Gwyn Howells. “It’s only a fair reward for the years of hard work and determination he has put into his sport.

“Geraint has an enviable reputation as a team player, helping his Team Sky colleague Chris Froome win the Tour de France in 2013 despite suffering a fractured pelvis early in the race. He also has two Olympic Gold medals and holds the world record in the team pursuit.

“So it’s wonderful to see him win an individual Gold medal for Wales to add to the Bronze he won earlier that week in the time trials.

“Geraint’s Gold was the icing on the cake for a fantastic performance by the athletes in Team Wales, and on behalf of HCC I’d like to congratulate them all on their fantastic efforts.”

During his personal appearances on HCC’s stand at the Royal Welsh showground Geraint ‘raced’ against the clock with members of the public on static cycles. He also took part in cooking demonstrations with HCC’s chef, Elwen Roberts.

He also hosted a track day at Newport Velodrome for winners of a school cookery contest organised by HCC, in which pupils had to design a healthy meal suitable for a world class athlete.
