Ryston Runners youngster strikes gold in London College Indoor Championships at Lee Valley
Another trip to Lee Valley Indoor Athletics Stadium proved fruitful for the older of the two talented Ryston athletes emanating from the MacQueen household.
Robert, who is a member of Ryston Runners but was competing in the colours of Oaklands College where he is a residential student and member of the athletics academy, won gold in the 400m at the London College Indoor Championships held at Lee Valley.
His time was 53.45, an indoor personal best and already places him in the top 50 nationally for this season.
