Rob­bie shows his tal­ent in Swe­den

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

Coat­bridge young­ster Rob­bie Grif­fith per­formed at a global park­our event in Swe­den at the week­end.

The 16-year-old fin­ished a very cred­i­ble eighth af­ter mak­ing it to the semi-fi­nal stage of the tour­na­ment.

Rob­bie, who was the youngest par­tic­i­pant in the event which con­sisted of 18 com­peti­tors, im­pressed judges dur­ing the qual­i­fy­ing rounds.

A de­lighted Rob­bie said: “I re­ally didn’t ex­pect to qual­ify!

“We were given around two hours to plan our route and then per­form in front of around 2000 spec­ta­tors in the arena.

“I was re­ally ner­vous in front of that num­ber of peo­ple but I did well and I’m very happy.

”To come eighth out of 65 in a park­our-style com­pe­ti­tion is some­thing I’m proud of.

The Air wipp tour­na­ment, held in Hels­ing­borg, has given Rob­bie yet another plat­form to show­case his phe­nom­e­nal tal­ent.

He added: “It’s so cool trav­el­ling the world do­ing what I en­joy.

“Hope­fully it con­tin­ues!”
