Congratulations to Bonchurch athlete, Nick Percy, has been nominated for an award in the Daily Record Young Athlete of the Year 2012.
There is still time to vote for Nick on the Daily Record Website prior to the final decision-making.
There are twelve nominees hoping to pick up an award at the awards ceremony at the end of the month.
Here’s what the paper has to say about Nick.
The Isle of Wight kid has quickly established himself as a future star and at just 17 holds the British record of 62.96m with the 1.5kg discus.
Percy, who also holds a Scottish U17 record in the hammer throw, said: “My proudest moment of this year would be making the final round of the Commonwealth Youth Games, lying in fourth and throwing out a huge personal best to get a British record, go fourth in the world and get a silver medal.
Vote for Nick on the Daily Record Website.
