Biography

In 1984 Terry McHugh won the Irish javelin title, which he would then win for the next 21 consecutive years. He also won the Swiss title with the spear in 1999-2000. McHugh competed in four Summer Olympics as a javelin thrower for Ireland, though he never made it to the final round. He also competed at the World Athletics Championships five times (1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001), with a best placement of 14th in 1997. At the European Championships McHugh threw the javelin in 1994, 1998, and 2002, placing seventh in 1994. McHugh also took up bobsledding and competed at the Winter Olympics twice for Ireland, in 1992 at Albertville and 1998 at Nagano. McHugh earned his degree in industrial engineering at Rathmines College of Commerce, but has worked as the Swiss national javelin coach and is also the director of the Lucerne Athletics Meet, which is one of top annual meets on the European circuit. His wife, Daniela, ran the 400 metres for Switzerland, and later Liechtenstein, winning a gold medal in 1995 at the Games of Small States of Europe.

Personal Best: JT – 82.75 (2000).
