Kay Morley-Brown (née Morley) (born 5 March 1963) is a retired Welsh athlete and former 100 metre hurdles Commonwealth Games champion, born in Swinton, Yorkshire.[1][2][3]

A member of the Cardiff Amateur Athletic Club, Morley-Brown won the Welsh Championships 100 metre hurdles every year from 1986 to 1992, and won the gold medal in the 100 metre hurdles at the 1990 Commonwealth Games representing Wales.[4][5]

Morley-Brown also competed for Great Britain in the 100 metre hurdles at the 1990 World Athletics Championships, Split, the 1991 World Athletics Championships, Tokyo, and at the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona.[1][6][7][8]

Some of the Welsh records Morley-Brown set in the early 1990s remain unbroken (the first two were set in her previous name of Kay Morley): the Welsh 100 metre high hurdles All Comers Record (i.e. achieved by any athlete in competition within Wales) of 12.91 seconds at Wrexham, July 1990; the 100 metre high hurdles Welsh National Record (i.e. achieved by any Welsh qualified athlete in competition worldwide) of 13.02 seconds at Auckland, February 1990 (records she still held as at 11 November 2008); the Welsh Indoor Women's 60 metre hurdles record of 8.16 seconds at Glasgow, 1992 (a record she still held as at 1st June 2009).[9][10]

Morley-Brown's 1990 time of 12.91 seconds ranks 7th fastest in the Great Britain and Northern Ireland all-time women's 100 metre hurdles list.[11]

Morley-Brown has since become a teacher in Cardiff.[12]
