A twelve year old boy who died trying to rescue two girls from the River Trent near Nottingham had just broken several records at his school's sports day.
Owen Jenkins' body was pulled from the water on Monday night after a major search operation at Beeston Marina. His family from Beeston Rylands say he had gone into the water to help two girls who had got into trouble, and have described him as a "hero".
Owen was a Year 7 pupil at the Chilwell School. His headteacher Ian Brierly has revealed that he broke a number of school records at their sports day last week. His achievements had even been celebrated in assembly.
Mr Brierly says he'll also be talking to Owen's classmates about ways of honouring his memory at the school.

Volunteers who've painstakingly constructed a replica Anglo-Saxon house in Nottinghamshire have been left devastated after it was destroyed in a suspected arson attack.
The wooden hut known as a Grubenhaus was found burnt to the ground at Skylarks Nature Reserve close to the Holme Pierrepont Country Park near Nottingham.
The building was designed to match the archaeological remains of a wooden structure previously unearthed at the site. The team of volunteers built it by hand using traditional methods dating back nine hundred years. They had been working on the project for eighteen months.
Police are investigating the fire. The Trust say they won't be beaten by the vandals and will continue the project undeterred.
Severn Trent Water say a road closed after a water mains burst in Derby should re-open next Tuesday.
Mansfield Road in Chester Green has been shut since the incident in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The 10-inch pipe fractured, sending a jet of water into the air, flooding nearby homes.
Leigh Gregory's home was one of those most badly damaged. He, his wife and three children were trapped in an upstairs room for six hours when water started cascading into the house. They're currently staying in a local hotel and hope to move into temporary accommodation next week. But it could be months before they can move back into their home.
Businesses have also been affected by the road closure. The landlord at the Coach and Horses pub, which looks out onto the scene of the mains burst, says it's been very quiet, even on Wednesday night when it would normally have been full for the Germany-England football match.
Severn Trent is pledging to compensate businesses who have suffered a loss of takings. The company has also laid on a free shuttle bus to help residents get in and out of Chester Green, after normal services were disrupted.
