West Norfolk AC member Cameron Ross was selected to represent the eastern region at the Disability Sports Event (DSE) Junior National Athletics Championship held at the University of Warwick.

His selection came after winning gold medals in the 100 and 200 metres at a regional athletics championships held, at Chelmsford, back in May.

The event brought together more than 240 athletes with various disabilities from all the regions of England, Scotland and Wales.

Ross, from Lynn, has only been running for 18 months and he performed exceptionally well.

On the Saturday, he was pipped into fourth place in the 100 metres with a personal best-equalling time.

He ran for the eastern region T20 4x100 team which was placed fourth in a very close finish.

On the Sunday, he ran in the 200 metres race and finished third to claim a bronze medal.

Without much time to recover he ran in the eastern region T20 4x400 team.

Although this is not his usual distance, Cameron ran his leg in a credible 66.5 and the team came first overall to claim the gold medal.

Cameron can now add a national title to his increasing medal haul this season and can be justifiably proud of his achievements.

He will continue to focus his attentions on achieving even greater accolades, under the guidance of his coaching team Paul Edwards Athletics and Rory Brown Conditioning.
