Nicholas Young – British Athletics

Many of you will have watched with interest the progress of one of our Upper Sixth students, Nicholas Young as he has competed with the shot put in several athletic competitions over the last few years.

We are delighted to announce that Nicholas has received his call up to represent British Athletics in the Loughborough International Competition on Sunday 20th May.

British team leader, Trevor Painter, said: “The Loughborough International is a fantastic early season opportunity for those athletes who are looking to be part of the British team for the World Junior Championships to test themselves in a high-quality competition environment.

“As a coach, I have taken athletes through the age-group ranks and on to successful senior careers therefore I know first-hand how important this fixture is within the development of junior athletes. I am sure that each member of the team will wear the British vest with pride and perform to their best in Loughborough.”

Nicholas will have to put his 18th birthday celebrations on hold this weekend!
