After being overweight when he joined the club and often the back marker in long-distance running events.

The teenage who also trains younger athletes won a medal last year at the Hampshire Championships for the hammer with a bronze and now is looking to do the same this year in the 1500m and he has also had a very good winter in the cross country league.
