HEART swap boy Gavin Greig has won medals in the British Transplant Games.
Gavin, 11, won two golds and a silver in the games in Norwich.
This was an improvement on his performance last year, when he gained two silvers and two bronzes.
Gavin's triumphs helped his team - from the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle - win the trophy for the best results overall.
Gavin, of Arthur Street, Golcar, won the table tennis and ball throw and came second in badminton.
He goes to Colne Valley High School.
He had a transplant at the age of nine, after contracting cardio- myopathy.
But just four months after the operation at the Newcastle hospital, he was back at his desk at Golcar Junior, Infant and Nursery School in Manor Road.
Gavin still has to have regular check-ups in hospital, but is fit enough to play soccer and cricket in Golcar.
He was one of 450 people - including 144 children - who took part in the three-day Transplant Games.
