Morpeth Harrier Ross Charlton, who is currently enjoying one of his best spells in the sport of athletics, was amongst those honoured at the 43rd annual dinner, hosted by Sport Newcastle at the Civic Centre,
on the evening of Thursday 5th March 2020.
Accompanied by his Mother Naomi, Charlton attended to receive an award from celebrated Guest Presenter Jonathan Edwards, the former World, Olympic, and European Triple Jump Champion, who currently still holds the World Record of 18.29m, an equivalent of 60 foot in old money.
Charlton received his honour in respect of his superb achievements in Modern Pentathlon, both at European and World level in 2019, a discipline that has also aided his current athletic performances for his hometown club.

WELL DONE ROSS!
