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.

Mary Wixey SWVAC


Mrs-Mary-Wixey

It is with sadness we record the passing of our oldest active female athlete on 21st December. Mary Wixey would have been 97 this month. Mary’s funeral will take place at 11am on Tuesday 23rd at St.Gregory the Great Church, St.James’ Square, Cheltenham GL50 3PR. All are welcome at the church. Followed by cremation at Cheltenham Crematorium attended by family and close friends only. Donations in Mary’s memory can be made to Alzheimers Research UK and sent c/o Mason & Stokes Funeral Services, Tudor Lodge, 54 Hewlett Road, Cheltenham GL52.

When Mary retired from teaching she took up a second career competing in athletics around the world. In 1996, aged 74 she could jump further in both the long jump and the triple jump than anyone in the world of her age. Aged 85, competing in the European and World Vet Championships. Aged 91, carrying the Olympic torch in Cheltenham – her proudest moment. She returned from World Masters Athletics Championships in Finland in 2012 having won 5 silver medals for 60m spring, discus, shot put, javelin and long jump.
