Elliot Powell leads the European rankings with his win in the International at Mannheim, Germany today.

The 19 year old triumphed in the 200m with a fantastic time of 20.68 which not only shoots him to the top of the Power of 10 rankings, but is another new club record, which Elliot only broke 2 weeks ago at the Midland Counties Championships.

Well done Elliot and good luck in the U20 Championships next month!
