The highlight of John Heap's rather inconsistent career was his victory in the 100y at the 1932 Southern Championships when he beat such leading sprinters as [Ernie Page] and George Saunders and equaled the English Native Record of 9.8. He twice reached the final of the 100y at the AAA Championships (1930-34), but finished last on both occasions. At the 1930 British Empire Games, he won a silver medal in the 4×110y relay (with [James Cohen], [John Hanlon], and [Stanley Englehart]). He worked for the Midland Bank.
Personal Bests: 100y – 9.8 (1929/32); 220y – 22.2e (1930).
