On Sunday 9th June Graham Roberts and myself competed in Midland Masters T&F Champs at Nuneaton. The meeting, although it clashed with other meetings and road races, was fairly well supported and on a warm and sunny day Graham won 3 golds in the o/80's shot putt (6.12m),Hammer (26.29m) and the Discus (17.08m). I won a gold in the o/65's 800m in 2mins 52.2sec and silver in the 1500m 5mins 49.7sec
