Pershore High School student George Brooks recently competed in a 8 mile marathon kayak race in Fowey Cornwall. This was his first such event, the weather on the day was very challenging the wind was strong and the sea was very rough. Despite the conditions George won his race finishing in 1 hr 14 mins, his closest competitor was 3 mins behind, this was a fantastic achievement as his competitors were at least 3 years older and much more experienced. George is coached by Andy Train from the Fladbury Paddle Club. This is hopefully the start of great things for George in the future.
