Paracyclist Fin Graham is still buzzing after making his Track World Championships debut last weekend.

Strathpeffer lad Graham (19) was the youngest member of the Great Britain squad for the competition in Apeldoorn, Holland.

He quickly set about justifying his inclusion in the squad, and came close to winning a bronze medal in every one of his three races over the weekend.

“I just missed out on a medal, but I was really happy with how I performed,” Graham said.

“Now I know why it’s such an honour to wear the world championship stripes, because everyone stepped up that extra level.
