A YOUNG inspiration has continued to make his mark in more than one sport.

Following on from winning the young inspiration award at last year's Denbighshire Community Sports Awards, Myddelton College disability sport ambassador William Bishop has enjoyed a fantastic summer of sport.

In June, sprinter William was selected by Disability Sport Wales to represent his country in both Holland and Germany.

He competed in the 100m at the Nijmegen Dutch National Para Championships and the Leverkusen German National Para Athletics Championships.

William improved on his personal best by half-a-second and despite coming home with a back injury, it was a wonderful opportunity for development on both personal and sporting levels.

The following month, he represented Wales at the National Junior Para Athletics Championships in Derby, sponsored by the Activity Alliance.

Despite his new, tougher T38 British Para Athletics classification, William gained silver in the 100m sprint and gold in the 4x100m relay.

He has also made his mark in the sport of wheelchair basketball.

William was a junior member of the North Wales Knights U-18s team who won gold at the British Junior Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Sheffield.

He was also the vice-captain of the Wales U-14s team at the Lord Taverner’s National Junior Championships in Worcester last month.

William was a stand-out player as Wales claimed bronze against six UK regions.

He scored 45 points and had the most assists in his team.

In an exciting development to the game, the 3x3 concept has been developed for the Commonwealth Games.

Wales are hopeful of entering a team and held their first inter-Wales competition on August 18.

William’s teenage development team of three won silver and his elite men’s team, in which he was the junior, also gained silver.
