His team-mate Josh Kelly took silver in the U17m 200m, finishing in 23.24 seconds, while he gained a bronze in the 60m with a time of 7.32 seconds.

Eleven Track Academy athletes also achieved personal bests over the two-day event at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, including Sia Bona in the U17w 60m (8.17 seconds) and Elvio Mendes in the U17m 60m (7.69 seconds).

Track Academy founder Connie Henry said: “Huge congratulations to Reece and Josh for their medal wins, which are well deserved after all the hard work they’ve put in at training.

“And it’s wonderful to see so many of our athletes achieve personal bests – congratulations to each and every one of them!”
