ALEX O'Neill claimed kayak slalom gold at the London Youth Games Regatta on Saturday.
He was one of a three-strong team representing Brent on the Docklands course, and blitzed his two runs to win the junior boys category.
His team-mates, who are fellow members of Pheonix Canoe Club, also fared well, with Rickell Smith coming fourth in the senior boys and Alice O'Neill, representing the borough for the first time, finishing 7th.
What made their results all the more impressive is that they usually compete in freestyle kayak events rather than the slalom.
O'Neill was presented with his gold medal by Olympic champion canoeist Tim Brabants.
