My coaching background I have over 40 years coaching experience in jumps and, less actively, throws. I am a Level 4 coach in high jump and triple jump, Level 3 in javelin and Level 2 in other jumps and throws. From 1992-1994 I was the Scottish national long jump coach as well as the Group coach for all jumps, co-ordinating the four disciplines. I was the membership secretary of the High Jumpers' Club of Great Britain.
Why I enjoy coaching I hope I can help others find the same pleasure in competition and development that I had.
My sporting history Represented Middlesex over a ten-year period during which I competed in a number of AAA championships both indoor and out. I had two international selections for London v. Warsaw in 1960, followed by GB 'B' against Switzerland.

Latterly as a veteran/master 60 and 65 age groups I gained high jump golds in European Veterans Indoors plus silver in long jump. I have a full set of World Veterans high jump medals ending with gold in Puerto Rico in 2003. In Brisbane in 2001 I finished 3rd in high jump, 4th in long jump and 8th in the hurdles final.

My greatest achievements were jumping in a AAA championship against the then world record holder, Valerie Brumel, and winning World Masters gold.
The best advice I was given That I could achieve more if I believed I could.
