Stephen smashed a 12 year record when representing Scotland in the Celtic Games Junior International Track and Field match against Ireland and Wales at Grangemouth on Saturday 4 August.

Stephen jumped a personal best of 7.34m that awarded him GOLD in the long jump, erasing the previous best Games performance of 6.96m in 2006. He is now ranked 3rd in the UK Under 20s age group and has moved into 7th position on the Scottish Under 20 all time best performers list.

Stephen has one more major competition left and he will travel to Aberdeen on Sunday 18 August to compete in the Scottish Nationals U20 and will be competing in both Long Jump and 200m.
