CLIN­TON Lark­ings from Dubbo was awarded a sil­ver medal in the cat­e­gory of In­dus­trial Me­chan­ics Mill­wright at the World­skills com­pe­ti­tion in Rus­sia.

Thrilled with his suc­cess, Clin­ton thanked his fam­ily for sup­port­ing him through­out the com­pe­ti­tion.

“To start this jour­ney as just a sec­ond year ap­pren­tice man­ual turner and to learn all the ex­tra skills has just made me a bet­ter tradie and has boosted my con­fi­dence through the roof,” Clin­ton wrote on his Face­book page.

Over 1350 com­peti­tors from 63 coun­tries met in the Rus­sian city of Kazan in Au­gust this year to com­pete across 56 skills.

Fif­teen young ap­pren­tices and trainees made up Aus­tralia’s team, known as the Skil­la­roos, and four came home with medals.
