Greene delighted the Welsh nation when he stormed to gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. It completed a season in which he had vectored at the European Championships, the European Cup and the IAAF Continental Cup.

In 2011, he secured his career highlight to date: World Championship gold. The victory came in Daegu with a commanding and powerful performance to edge out Javier Culson.

He was also honoured at the end of the long 2010 season by the British Sports Journalists' Association for Outstanding Performance of the Year.

He was first introduced to athletics at Penygaer Primary School but didn't begin training seriously until he went to UWIC at the age of 18 and joined Darrell Maynard's training group. He graduated with a degree in Leisure and Sports Management in 2008. He is now based at the University of Bath and trains with Malcolm Arnold.

At the London 2012 Olympic Games - his first Olympics - he finished fourth in the 400m hurdles and fourth in the 4 x 400m relay.
