Athletics Stanmore athlete Richard Goodman won both the 800m and 1500m under-17 races in the Young Athletes League in Norwich last week.
Goodman, 15, achieved one of his season's ambitions by breaking the two minute barrier, winning in 1:59.8. Delighted with the performance, he said: "I ran a tactical race and was very pleased to win in such good time. I had just completed a very tough training week for elite young athletes at St Mary's College, Twickenham.
"But it made this win all the more worthwhile."
