Golden boy Ross
Morpeth’s Ross Charlton rounded off his 2018/19 season on Saturday, by claiming gold at the UIPM’s U19 LaserRun World Championship in Budapest.
The 17-year-old added another major medal to his collection with a superb display in the Hungarian capital.
For the first time, the World Championships for both the Junior’s LaserRun and Senior’s Pentathlon were held together, the Combined LaserRun being the final two events in a full Pentathlon, comprising 4 x pistol shooting and subsequent 4 x 800m runs. The field of 32 athletes saw Ross lead throughout before coming home ahead of Egypt’s Eiad El Kashef and Yuriy Kovalchuk from Ukraine
