Grantham Athletic Club teenager Josh Brown’s hurdling prowess has been recognised by an award from UK Athletics.

Josh posted the quickest 400m hurdles time in the under-17 category last summer, with his 53.4sec putting him top of the UK rankings.

The Priory Ruskin Academy student is also ranked seventh in the octathlon and in the top 40 for five other events. He still has another year in the under-17 age group.
