Blower a world champ
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.
