Sale Harriers Life Member and a specialist shot putter GEOFF TYLER, recorded a new UK M70 best of 12.90m at this VAC meeting in Kingston-on Thames. It further improved his No.1 UK ranking of 12.86m that he achieved at the Northern Masters Championships in Hull on June 30th.

Geoff’s been previously Britain’s No.1 in the M65 and M60 categories and ranks No2 in the 2019 M70 category in the Hammer and 3rd in the discus.    These were big improvements for Geoff who put it down to “the weekly Thai massage that has helped my knotted muscles to be more relaxed in the circle. I never realised how tight & knotted my muscles were”.

Geoff’s M45 discus throw of 49.08m in 1994 is still an Australian record. Geoff was a Sale Harrier from 1971 until he moved to Australia in 1989 and then briefly when he returned from 1996-1998. He was awarded Life Membership in 1988 for almost 20 years’ service to the senior men’s National T & F teams.
