Met-Track is the brainchild of John, who launched it in its pilot borough of Bexley in 2005 whilst he was deputy to the Police Borough Commander there. He engineered a presentation by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeththere after the project’s first season, and paralleled work on expanding the scheme across London alongside both his professional status as a Police Superintendent and a highly successful sprints coach.
John has coached since 1976, and retired after 30 years’ police service in 2011. In 2013 he was awarded the MBE for Services to Athletics by The Queen, having picked up a number of awards before that, including the GG2 Diversity Award for his Met-Track work, in 2009. He has coached hundreds of athletes over the years, taking them to successes ranging from club to European and World Championships, and the Athens and London Olympic Games. He is now Scheme Director to one of the most successful sports-based youth diversion schemes in the country!
