ATHLETICS: Donovan is simply the best!
Donovan Capes added the UK All Comers Championships gold medal to his English Schools title.
He has been in excellent form in training - hitting huge distances to prepare for the under-15 boys shot competition as all of the top 10 ranked throwers were in attendance at Bedford.
It became a battle between England and Wales where Capes had to pull out a personal best to win the title on his last throw of 15.46m in the sixth round.
His dad Lewis said: “Donovan has been extremely committed to his training programme where he has trained six days per week all year.
"He showed he was a true champion, coming from behind and winning on his last throw. The competition was brilliant as the lead kept changing through the rounds.
"What a great season - winning both of the top titles this year and also retaining his UK number one ranking.”
