Holbeach sporting legend Geoff Capes receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Lincolnshire sports body
Legendary Holbeach sportsman Geoff Capes has at last been recognised by his home county, 50 years after making his international athletics debut.
The 70-year-old shot put legend, who won two Commonwealth Games and two European Indoor titles in the 1970s, was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by Active Lincolnshire, part of Sport England.
Capes received the accolade at this month's Lincolnshire Sport and Physical Activity Awards for his role in setting up and running the Lincolnshire Throws Academy which he does along with his son Lewis.
