Weydon School student, Freddie Mellon-Hendry recently took part in a big ski race and has won the title of Fastest Male U14 in the South of England.

As well as this accomplishment, Freddie has competed in 6 races in total over the last year and has won 5 gold medals and one silver! The races were all held around the South of England.

Freddie has had to overcome an illness where he was unable to race for 3-4 months which means this win is even more impressive.

Freddie is a member of a local ski race club and is entering the Surrey School Ski Race where he will represent Weydon School in October.

Miss Laura Butler, Progress & Achievement Leader for Freddie’s year commented: “This is so impressive and we’re all so proud of Freddie’s recent win. He has overcome some tricky hurdles and worked so hard to gain this title. We are looking forward to hearing how he does in his next competition and wish him lots of luck for the future.”
