John is UK Coal’s Company Surveyor and Minerals Manager and is based at head office in Doncaster. He competed in five cycling events and gained three top 10 finishes, including a bronze medal on the Velodrome track in the individual pursuit. He also finished 5th in the Road Time Trial and 8th in the Mountain Biking.
Making this a particularly great achievement is the fact that John also had to deal with the heat – a staggering 38 degrees Celcius for Sunday’s Mountain Bike Race!
The World Masters Games is held every four years, the year after the Olympics, and is for Masters of particular sports. This year there were over 18,000 competitors taking place from all over the world in different disciplines.
