Visit from ex-student weightlifter

Students in the Weightlifting enrichment group were visited by a former pupil who is now a National Weightlifting champion.
Eron Murray(17) is now English Junior Champion. He won the title at the English age group Championships at Luton, Bedfordshire in February. Eron started weightlifting in year 7 at the Academy and, showing great promise early on, went on to win a silver medal at the British Schools Championships in year 9.
He is now a member of the Pegasus weightlifting club in Maidstone where he trains 3 times a week. His next major competition with the British Junior Championships is being held in West Yorkshire in September.
Good luck Eron!
