Andy was also last year ranked as the fastest 200m student in Europe, after winning gold at the BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) Indoor Championships.
His time – a remarkable 20.66 seconds – meant he was top of the European standings, and the third fastest student in the world.

Last month, Andy travelled to Chorzow in Poland for the European Athletics Team Championships.
His performance in the 200m event helped Team GB finish third in the overall standings at the event. Andy will later this month travel to Manchester for the selection event for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
“They will select three athletes for the 200m, and there’s some seriously quick guys at the moment,” Andy said.
“You’ve got big names like Zharnel Hughes, Miguel Francis and Adam Gemili. I know I can run faster than what I have done before, so I’m hoping I can go there and catch a few of them by surprise.
