The eight year-old Wisbech Inline Speed Skaters prodigy travelled to Evergem last weekend to take part in the 19th International Skeeler Indoor competition.

Buckler won all four of his races as he beat off competition from other UK representatives and some top European prospects.

Buckler has thanked his coaches and team-mates for their help in his training programme and is focused on challenging for more victories at the Indoor British Championships later this month.
