    Cool Getting records

    Please, what's the correct word in English defining just the good position achieved in a championship. I'm not talking about winning, nor getting second or third position. I'm just referring to a good place from fourth on...

    Can we say, for instance: "He got a good record" (providing 'record' also means "good position" which I am not quite sure)?

    Or simply it would be more suitable to say: "He got a good position"?

    Any idea very welcomed.

    Not exactly sure what you mean, but here's some suggestions:


    He placed second in the race.

    He earned a ribbon.

    He earned 4th place.

    He participated in a race and ended up as a front runner.

    He was in the top quarter of the group.
