Charles Vigurs was an excellent exponent of the pommelled horse, and in 1908 helped the Birmingham Athletic Institute to take second place in the Adams Shield, for the International Teams Championship. However, he was a member of the winning team for the next three years, 1909-11. He took part in two Olympics, winning a team bronze at Stockholm in 1912, two years after taking part in the Brussels exhibition of athletics and gymnastics.
Shortly after the outbreak of the war, Vigurs enlisted into the newly formed 11th battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment. The battalion was sent to France in July 1915 and after seeing action for more than 18 months, Charles Vigurs was to lose his life when killed by a shell.
