Bob Matthews


We have received news that Bob Matthews, who competed for Leamington Vets, died a few days ago.

Robert Matthews, MBE, competed in blind middle- and long-distance events. He won eight gold medals across seven Paralympic Games, and has been referred to as an “iconic athlete”.

Some of you may have known Bob and there is quite a lot of information about his achievements on the internet re: his many medals in international competitions including   para Olympics for blind athletes.

We pass on our condolences to his family.
