This “Gentleman’s” still got it!

Throwing as a guest in the N. E. Masters league Bill Gentleman – M 75 – warmed up with a reasonable 38.08 in the hammer before going on to the weight throw (short hammer) He began with a moderate 13+ with his next four throws ranging from 14.40 to 14.90 – a Scottish record – before launching his last throw out to 15.52 to surpass the old British Record of 15.17. This is Bill’s best for two years and was done off one turn as he is awaiting surgery on a suspected torn cartilage in his right knee.
