Gold for Josh - One to Watch

Published on 3 September 2015 by Mrs Fiona MacFarlane Categories: Sports

Josh Kerr during his victory lap at the European Athletics Junior ChampionshipsJosh Kerr (Class of 2015) won the 1500m competition representing Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the European Athletics Junior Championships at Eskilstuna in Sweden.

A wonderful feat in its own right, it is made even more exceptional by the fact that Josh is only 17. As the competition was open to those aged 19 and under and so Josh was competing against some athletes two years older than himself.

This capped off a great year for Josh, who had come away from the England Athletics Championships with one gold medal and had been voted Scotland’s Young Athlete of the Year.

He is now at university in New Mexico in the United States on a Sports Scholarship.

We will be watching Josh's progress with interest.
