Fraser has enjoyed a tremendous season and has established himself as Britain’s number one Under 15 high hurdler so it was no surprise therefore that he tore the field apart with a 10.96 clocking in the final of the 80m hurdles to win by a big margin.

Harrison is ranked as the country’s sixth best Under 15 hammer thrower and he won the event with a throw of 44.05m. He was also selected for the discus in which he threw 32.00m for ninth place.

Will Kong just missed out on gold with a second place finish in the 300m running a time of 37.44. Kong was sixth in the 100m clocking 12.01.
