Hi Dave,

I wondered if these photos and results might provide  interest and inspiration  on the Olympians Facebook page, Olympians Club Records and the Olympians History and Tributes page on the club website.  Mick's result, at the World Vets 25km Road Racing Championships, was not publicised at the time, nor was it recorded in the Club records as computers were not being used as extensively as now.

In July 1994, Mick and I travelled to Canada where Mick took part in the World Vets 25k Running Championships.  Mick won Bronze in the V60 category,  in a time of 1h.38min.16secs,  on a hot 31st July, beaten by the famous Ed Whitlock. The GB team also won Bronze in the event.  Mick is pictured in his Oswestry vest on Ed Whitlock's heels at 17km, and in the  GB Team photo receiving Bronze Medals .

We have  a few other photos of this event and about 100 photos of our trip to Canada which also involved a canoe/camping trip in La Mauricie National Park.
