Not the Sportsman of the Year

Mick Gault's diary of events on his achievement of beating the English Record by winning his 15th Medal at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne 2006 for Pistol Shooting 4 April 2006

Rightly boasts that he is "THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ENGLISH ATHLETE IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES, holding 15 medals" - but as they were for Pistol Shooting the BBC decided that Top Toff Totty was more worthy.....


And he's also the only medal winner never to have been officially honoured! If he were in pretty much *any* other country, he would be a household name, as he has more Olympic medals that any other person in the UK.
