DAVENTRY athlete Niklas Aarre (16) took Bronze medal in the discus last weekend at the England Athletics National Track and Field Championship in Bedford with a throw of 46.42 metres.
Niklas has had a great season becoming County and Inter County (10 counties) Champion as well as coming fifth in the English School Track and Field National Championship.
There is still some competitions left this season where Niklas is hoping to improve his personal best of 49.01 (which currently puts him fourth in the country) with throw of more than 50 metres which is within his capability.
Niklas thanked Daventry Leisure Centre for his Passport to Excellence which meant he could make use of the gym facilities as an aspiring athlete. This has helped him tremendously and he hopes this will continue.
He also expressed thanks to the staff at William Parker School for all their support and help throughout the year.
