About Me

I won my first competition in 1967, and also competed as a professional. The most exciting competition was in 1974 when I was placed 1st in Latin at the Asian Pacific Championships. I completed my first Professional Degree in 1982 and completed them all in all styles in 1988.

I was examined by Margaret Reeve from Australia for my Fellowship in 1989. In July 1989 I was made a B grade examiner and in 1990 I achieved an A grade Examiner. I am a fully qualified British trained Scrutineer and my qualifications include being an A grade examiner and Adjudicator. I have taught many well known Athletes, Wrestlers, Swimmers, and Foot ball personnel.
