“UK’s Two 91-Meter Javelin Men”

Steve Backley & Roald Bradstock

The Olympic Movement Series

A long, long, LONG time ago – way back in 1985 – l threw 91.40m with the “Old Rule” javelin in Arlington, Texas, USA for my 3rd British Record and 1st Commonwealth Record. In the 1990’s Steve Backley threw 91.46m with the “New Rule” javelin.

Both Records still stand today!

Steve was gracious enough to sign each and everyone of the collages in this javelin throwing sequence of me throwing my record, making for a very unique piece of art and memorabilia of Britain’s two 91 meter men.

The Greatest Masters Athlete ever : Phil Raschker

Roald Bradstock, aka “The Olympic Picasso”, creates another innovative video that blends Art and Sport. In this latest release his subject is two time Sullivan Award finalist and multiple World Master Champion and World Record Holder “Phil” Raschker. A video sequence of “Phil” long jumping was transformed into 38 collages and then shown in sequence and put to music – quite appropriately: “The Star Spangled Banner”. This collage sequence is now part of the United States Sports Academy and American Sport Art Museum & Archives collection
