About Login

As a young athlete I was fortunate to throw the javelin for England Schools, Scotland and the RAF. A shoulder injury hindered and 'life' (work, family) took priority over progressing my career through to the Senior level, as with many athletes.

More recently as a Vet, I've done 2 Decathlons to raise funds for charity. The last one in 2014 was when I ruptured my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in my right knee after landing badly at hurdle 8 in the 110m hurdles event 6 of 10. Managed to finish the race and the rest of the decathlon before discovering how bad it actually was. Had reconstruction surgery in May 2015 and have been working hard with physio, and in the gym this winter. Now at my strongest ever (260kg deadlift, 235kg squat, 170kg front squat, 150kg bench press, 60kg one handed barbell snatch!), so I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do this summer when I can compete.

Competed for Great Britain at the 2016 World Masters Athletics Championships in Perth, Australia. Shot Put 6th, Javelin 7th and Discus 9th. Great experience despite not being able to bring my very best performances to the championships. Am now hungry to medal in 2018 after some hard work!

1994 Senior Boys English Schools Champion - Javelin - 63.14m
