  1. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to
    shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  2. My husband is Campbell Waghorn’s (from Christchurch New Zealand) son and has told me his father got 2 gold and 2 silver medals at these games. Most likely gold for Javelin but he competed in shot put and the 100 yard dash as well. He might be your missing NZL participant.

    • Thanks Kitty, Ill look in to this when i get the chance. Does your husband have any documentary proof of his fathers medals/ participation?

    • Thanks Kitty, Does your husband have any documentary proof of his fathers medals/ participation? I’ve been through the results (I have a complete set) and can find no mention of anyone with the surname Waghorn in the results for Javelin, Shot Put or the 100m
