IAN Miller has continued to add to his medal collection with double gold at his latest two events.

The first was in Templemore, Ireland and was an invtation meeting where the Herts Phoenix veteran competed against other world throwers in the over 60s group.

And it was a familiar story as he won the gold medal from eight throws with weights of 25kg.

The second competition was The British Weights Decathlon Championships in Derby.

Although Miller’s points total was 4442 he still won even without scoring a single point in the discus because of three no throws.

However, he seemed to redeem himself with a British Record in the heavy hammer throw with a throw of 16.49m.

There were only five others in his group.
