Jonny Wins National Youth Freestyle Kayaking Event
Thursday, 27 September 2012
Year 11 pupil Jonny Williams has won the Under 15 National Series in the Youth Freestyle Kayaking competition in Nottingham. Following his win, Jonny then went on to win the Under 18s’ first of four heats for the Nationals.
Keen kayaker Jonny was well prepared for the competition after spending the summer kayaking in Ottawa in Canada with friends. Jonny arranged the trip himself and it clearly paid dividends. Jonny also attended a sports coaching programme as part of the Bolton School gifted and talented programme last year, and though geared towards football and major team sports, Jonny was able to take away some of the tips and put them into practise.
Next year Jonny is considering kayaking in Uganda.
