World Championship Success

Congratulations to Cam Leighton on his outstanding medal haul from the World Racketlon Championships.
 
Cam represented Team GB at the tournament held in Graz, Austria, winning a total of four medals. These were silver as captain of u18s GB team, silver in u18 mixed doubles, bronze in u18 junior doubles and bronze in adult GB4 team.
 
If you are not familiar with Rackelton, here is an outline of the competition format. Each player competes against an opponent at table tennis, badminton, squash and then tennis (in that order), with each sport played to 21 points: the player who scores the most points across all four sports wins the Racketlon match. Every point in every sport count towards the score, so there are a lot of tactics and mental pressure.
 
Over the last two years, Cam studied a very creative programme at Wyke which included A Levels in Fine Art, Photography and English Language. This year, Cam is progressing to the Wyke Art Foundation course to build an even stronger portfolio with an aim of gaining a place at a prestigious visual creative undergraduate programme.
