Finnbarr, from Rodsley and a pupil at the newly-merged Dentone College Preparatory School at Smallwood Manor, triumphed in the 500m and 1,000m competitions at Tatem Park in London.

Earlier this year, Finnbarr was crowned British Champion in the indoor event at Maldon, Essex, after wining the 200m and 500m finals.

His next event will be the Europa Cup in Zandvoorde, Belgium in August.
