Medals are stack­ing up for speedy Zach

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Race For Life -

A dab- hand speed stacker showed he has the golden touch af­ter win­ning medals at an international com­pe­ti­tion in Spain.

Zach Locke has pre­vi­ously im­pressed his class­mates at Chal­lock Pri­mary School by tak­ing part in the speed stack­ing world cham­pi­onships in Ger­many.

The game in­volves stack­ing and un­stack­ing plas­tic cups in dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions at the fastest speed.

Now the 10-year-old school­boy has re­turned home with six gold medals from the Span­ish Open Com­pe­ti­tion held in Madrid.

He won two gold medals in the re­lay, where the team set a new UK record, as well as a gold medal in the dou­bles com­pe­ti­tion, the 3-3-3, the 3-6-6 and the full cy­cle with a rapid speed of just 7.841 sec­onds.

His mum Suzanne said: “The UK team had an amaz­ing week­end, it’s all been a great ex­pe­ri­ence ahead of the UK na­tional com­pe­ti­tion to be held in Winchester on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 15.”
