Newham’s Leroy Slue has been celebrating his own athletics success recently.

The World Championships at London Stadium caught the imagination of the public once again, after Slue took 100 metre honours at home and abroad.

Ranked as the fourth fastest British 100m runner in his V35 age group after a season’s best of 10.89 seconds in Spain in May, Slue was picked to represent Great Britain at the European Masters.

An impressive 11.07 at the British Championships was his second-fastest time of the year and saw him finish in second place.

And he went on to replicate that performance in Denmark, finishing second in a time of 11.21 behind Israel’s Asaf Malka (11.17).

Slue’s hard work and determination have been key to his success and he has been selected for the Great British squad for the World Masters Championships in Malaga from September 5-16 next year.
