Irish Rugby prodigy Aaron Sexton absolutely smashed the 100m and 200m records at the Ulster Schools Athletics Championships at the Antrim Forum track on Saturday.
The 18-year-old speedster, representing Bangor Grammar School, won the senior boys 100m in 10.49 seconds. He then followed that up with another record breaking time in the 200m. His time of 21.20 was also an Ulster Schools best.
The Ulster Rugby star is certainly one for the future, making headlines last year at just 17 when he recorded the fastest ever speed by a player in a match for the northern province.
Sexton clocked a top speed of 10.5m/s (37.8km/h) in a Celtic Cup game versus Cardiff.
