LLOYD COWAN MBE – British Athletics

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Lloyd Cowan MBE. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

Lloyd specialised as a 110m and 400m hurdler during his athletics career before moving into coaching where he guided several British stars to global glory. Most notably, he coached Christine Ohuruogu to the 400m Olympic title in 2008, and three further Olympic medals, including 400m silver on home soil at London 2012, as well as two memorable 400m world titles in 2007 and 2013, among many other honours.  He also guided Andy Turner to Commonwealth and European 110m hurdles titles in 2010 before world championship bronze in 2011.

He coached several athletes to domestic and international honours during his career including his son, Dwayne, who he proudly saw capture world and European 4x400m relay bronze in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
