Our sporting siblings are going for gold!
Brother and sister are sporting sensations!
Our very own Year 7 student Harvey, a kick-boxing star, represented his country in a combat competition recently. During October he competed in the Unified World Championships in Rome.
Harvey, has been training since he was six and last year he picked up silver and bronze medals at the Unified World Championships in the past. Over the two days of competition this year Harvey won a total of 3 medals, 2 of them gold!
Harvey trains at React Martial Arts, part of the Rowley Community Activity Network which works to bring together all organisations across the area to provide everyone with the opportunity to get active and healthy through sport and physical activity.
Harvey’s not on his own in his family, sister and Year 10 student Kizzie-May also has sporting successes to shout about. She has been winning competitions in her chosen sport of swimming. Kizzy-May represents Haden Hill Swimming Club as well as the West Midlands and recently won 4 gold medals in her last meet.
Here’s looking to the next Olympics!
