Is Team GB on the horizon for this Wisbech 10 year old?

Arthur Buckler skates with the Wisbech Inline Speed skaters and he's already breaking records!

He's been competing since he was six but he's still got four years until he has a chance at Team GB.

He already competes with people much older than him though:

"I trained with the GB Team at the development session and we did a 50 lap build up and I managed to complete 49 out of the 50 laps and we putting in laps around a 200m track at about 28 seconds.

"I have some friends that are in the GB team and they mess about with me and it's really fun because it gets really rough and then I start getting dead legs! But it toughens me up so when I fall over it doesn't hurt as much because I'm used to that."
