Harrison speeds his way to skating success in the British Marathon


Former Emneth resident, Harrison Tuck, now a Springwood High School Yr 8 pupil at Kings Lynn, finished the outdoor season of the British Inline Speedskating Championships in fine style, concluding with a silver medal in the British Marathon held at the London Velodrome circuit at the Olympic Park.

Harrison lost out on a gold medal by only the smallest of margins after a hard race, which brought the end to a season which saw Harrison pick up three Championship bronze medals and a gold medal, becoming British Champion at three kilometers, as well as competing in European races for the first time.

Added to a series of race wins in competitions against teams from afar as Birmingham, London and Derby, Harrison, who has only been competing in the sport for two years, says this has been his best season to date, and with a new team (RS Pro Skate), he hopes to build on this year’s success with more home and European racing in the New Year.

The new team is currently looking for an indoor skating venue, and is keen to welcome new skaters of all ages and skills.

The club can be contacted via its Facebook page, RS Pro Skate.
