MULTI-event specialist and Midlands decathlon bronze medallist Leigh Pritchard competed in the Dover Olympic Games in Chipping Campden and was second.
On a whim he competed in the King of the Hill challenge, comprising standing long jump, caber tossing, hammer throwing and stone shot-putt.
Pritchard found himself in the silver medal position, earning a trophy for his efforts.
He said: "It was tremendous fun but I'm glad I didn't have to compete in Dover's most famous event – shin kicking!"

The Dover Olympick Games were started in 1604 by Robert Dover and have evolved into a rural sports day and village celebration.
Notably they influenced the revival of the modern Olympics in Athens 1896, after Baron Pierre De Coubertin and others visited the games and obtained ideas later included in the Olympic movement.
In other races Oliver Starkey relished a different type of multi-eventing, placing 40th in the Cotswold Sprint Triathlon and setting a personal best in the process.
Mark James (above) ran strongly to claim second in the final Avon League 3,000m, clocking 10.08, while his father John was second in his V60 category in the Shortwood Summer 5K.
