Gary Negus SCVAC

It is with much sadness that we report the death of Gary aged 78. The Royal Marine Commando, who is a life member of Portsmouth AC, last competitive appearance was at our 2017 Track & Field Championships in Birmingham where he won three silver medals in the M70 shot, hammer and weight before succumbing to that terrible disease Asbestosis. We all offer our condolence to his family.
