Sunderland's Aidan Turnbull has won two medals at his first major international competition.
The 18-year-old runner has learning difficulties and was selected to represent Great Britain at the World Indoor Championships for Persons with Intellectual Disability.
Aidan, a student at Sunderland College, competed in the 4 x 200m relay and the team won gold.
He was drafted in at the last minute to take part in the 4 x 400m relay after another athlete picked up an injury.
The team went on to win silver.
Individually, Aidan competed in the 60m and 200m sprints, but just missed out on the medals after finishing fourth in both races.
Aidan was just 0.004 of a second behind the third placed competitor in the 60m sprint.
But despite missing out on an individual medal he was delighted with his performance.
He said: "I felt confident, really happy that we really pulled well together as a team, and I’m really proud."
