“He has broken the state record for running and also received gold medals at the State and National Cross Country Championships.
“At the recent State Championships Harry won a Gold Medal in the Individual 800m event, breaking the 6 year old record for this event. He received silver in the Individual 100m event and bronze in the Individual 200m race.
