KEEN athlete Joe Ferguson is now the fastest under 15 200-metre runner in Yorkshire.

Joe, 14, of St Andrew's Drive, Darton, trains three to four times a week at the Dorothy Hyman Centre, Cudworth.

His dad Chris said: "Joe won gold in the 200 metres at the Yorkshire Championships held at Dorothy Hyman, and also won silver in the 100 metres.

"He's only just got stuck in with athletics since September, but he's really knuckled down.

"He's always saying 'dad can you run us down to train', he's really dedicated."
