Mike Winch (born 20 July 1948)[1] is a retired British shot putter who won a Commonwealth silver medal in the 1974 Christchurch and 1982 Brisbane Commonwealth Games.

Subsequent to his athletics career he has coached international athletes (mainly throwers) including multiple gold medallist Judy Oakes OBE, and Olympic athletes Philippa Roles and Emeka Udechuku. He was chief British throws coach at the World Championships in Gothenburg 1991, chief throws coach to the England team in Kuala Lumpur 1998 and overall chief coach of England's athletics team at the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games[2]

He was UK Athletics Vice President for four years, stepping down in February 2008 over the governing body’s handling of the Dwain Chambers controversy.[3]

He has written several sporting technical books (strength and conditioning training) and three novels (Running From Gold - Run to Death - The Convocation of Colours).
