Nicholas started photographing field events in 1956 to learn about technique for the events in his quest to become the best decathlon competitor and javelin thrower in Australia. By the time of his retirement from open competition he had held the Australian javelin record on and off for 18 years and won 9 Australian javelin titles and 3 Australian decathlon titles. In 1958 he set a Commonwealth javelin record of 71.90 metres and increased that to 81.01 metres in 1962.
In the past 20 years he has won a number Australian Masters titles and continues to compete and coach and photograph track & field.
