Philippa Roles

The club regrets having to report the passing of  Philippa Roles.
 
Philippa is a multiple all time club record holder across several age groups, and one of the greatest throwers the UK has ever produced. Philippa represented Great Britain at the Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Her personal best throw of 62.89 metres, achieved in June 2003, has her placed fourth in the British all-time rankings.
 
Wales’ 2008 discus Champion also placed fourth at two Commonwealth Games, in Manchester and Delhi, and sixth in Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne.  As a junior, she finished third at the 1997 European Junior Championships and fourth at the 1999 European U23 Championships.
 
Once funeral details are known they will be published on the club website along with any tributes we receive.
