Biography

Peter WELLS

Peter Wells was a high jumper who competed at the 1952 and 1956 Olympics, competing for Great Britain. He competed for England at the 1950 British Empire Games at Auckland and finished fifth. He stayed in New Zealand, and settled in Christchurch, although he returned to England in 1952 to qualify for the British Olympic team. Four years later he represented New Zealand in the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games and placed fourth in the high jump. Wells won seven New Zealand titles (1951 and 1953-8) and was runner-up in the AAA Champs of 1952, and third in 1949, winning titles at the 1947 AAA Juniors, and Southern AAA in 1947 and 1952. His best mark of 2.019 (6-7½), set in December 1954 at Papakura, was considered both a British and New Zealand record.

Personal Best: HJ – 2.019 (1954).
