Ross Millington

Ross Millington capped his momentous season at the European Under-23 Championships in Ostrava with a breathtaking run in the 5,000 metres to take the silver medal.

An amazing achievement and an amazing season that has seen Ross go from strength to strength in each race which started way back in September in the USA where Ross is based at New Mexico University.

Ross was only a hairs breadth away from the gold medal in the race to the tape with Norwegian favourite Sindre Burras just edging Ross in the final 10 metres.

Taking a European silver medal is the highest ever achievement in the clubs history and will have extra meaning for Ross as the 2012 Olympic games looms ever closer.

Well done Ross Millington European Under-23 5,000 metres silver medallist.
