Brockley boy Alex Yee, who trains at the Ladywell Arena with Kent Athletics Club, has been selected to represent England at the Commonwealth Youth Games in the 3,000m.
The games are being held in Samoa in September and each country can only take 21 athletes so it is very impressive to be selected!
This week Alex also ran the 5,000m qualification time (with an incredible 14:09!) for the European Junior Championships being held in Sweden, but will have to wait until early July when UK Athletics announce the full squad to know if he has been selected.
