Last weekend Adam Hill, Year 8 pupil at Pershore High School competed in a national speed skating competition in Sheffield - the 2017 Yorkshire Sprint Championships . The event was contested by the best speed skaters in the country within their respective age groups with Adam competing in the Junior 'D category (11-13 yrs). Being seeded number one for his age group, the pressure was on and Adam didn't disappoint.
The ice conditions were fast and Adam dominated the event throughout, winning all his races with rapid starts, impressive overtakes and strong finishes. It was a great way to start the season and bodes well for Adam's upcoming European competitions and the British Championships in the new year.
