Blower a world champ

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

DOUAY Mar­tyrs School gym­nast Kieran Blower is of­fi­cially a world cham­pion.

The Ick­en­ham sec­ondary school pupil, cur­rently in Year 7, teamed up with 17-year-old part­ner Cal­lum Por­tu­gal–Walker to take gold in China. Both of the young­sters put in around 20 hours of prac­tice each week at the Lon­don Bor­ough of Gym­nas­tics Club, in Hayes, to beat off the world’s best com­peti­tors.

Douay Mar­tyrs head teacher Tony Cor­ish marked the achieve­ment in an as­sem­bly and spoke of how proud the school was of the achieve­ment.

Blower is now set to show­case some of his tal­ents in the school’s Year 7 cel­e­bra­tion evening, which will take place in July.
