PK education are proud to be supporting a rising star

PK Education are helping Shaun Thorpe’s dreams of wrestling his way to Olympic success come true. Shaun who attends Anthony Gell School in Derbyshire, has been competing in wrestling competitions for 6 years all over the UK and recently won a silver medal at the Jelgava Youth Open Tournament in Latvia for Team GB, where there were 16 in his weight category.
PK Education are proud sponsors of Shaun, who is a member of Middleton and Wirksworth Wrestling Club and also the National Talent Squad.

Shaun says: “My ultimate dream is to represent my country at the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics when I am old enough. I represented Great Britain in Latvia in February where I was ranked eighth and hope to be selected to represent Great Britain in 2016 at other international competitions with the National Talent Squad.

I hope to be selected to attend further training camps at Lilleshall. I am working towards becoming English Junior Champion at the competition in March 2016 and will also be attending other competitions throughout the year representing Middleton and Wirksworth Wrestling Club. I am very grateful for the sponsorship that I have received from PK Education.”

Sharen Thorpe, Shaun’s Mum said: “We are immensely proud of Shaun, it is always a tough competition and for him to come away with a silver medal makes me so proud. We are very grateful to PK Education for their kind support of Shaun, it is an expensive sport, his boots can cost £70 per pair and then obviously there is the training and travel to competitions that soon mounts up.”

PK Education have been supporting Shaun for over a year now and look forward to watching his future successes.
