When you work hard and persevere, great things happen!
Mason, a member of our Year 9 has recently won a Gold medal at a worldwide boxing competition in Denmark.
He has had to sacrifice a lot. He has had to:
- Run 2/3 times per week, as well as attend his gym 5 times a week.
- Hill Sprints
- Travelling around different gyms to improve on sparring, including Blackpool Sharpstyle boxing gym.
- Improve his tec work and strength and conditioning.
- Sticking to a strict diet, which at times has been hard, but he showed true grit and determination and lost the recommended 2.5kgs which was advised by his coach.
Mason had a leg injury, due to the hard routines and hill sprints resulting in him having to see a Physiotherapist just three days before leaving for Denmark.
We are extremely proud of Mason, and what he is achieving. Keep up the hard work. We know you will go far!
