Sports Preliminary – 1958

John Gardiner (Jumping)

This photograph was found in the 1958 Clydebank High School magazine.

John Gardiner got in touch with oldchs.co.uk to let us know that it is him taking part in the high jump. He said “The event was staged on the ash surface of the football field with landing pit consisting of a layer or two of sand. My style was based on the “Western Roll”. This was long before the “Straddle” and “Fosbury Flop” techniques evolved. I cleared 5ft 1inch on the day. However my win in the Shot Putt led to my inclusion in school team that competed in the County Championships (see photo of Athletics team with both trophies)”.
