A kayaker from Weybridge has been named in the England squad after winning two silver medals at national championships this summer.

Rory Stewart, 16, who attends Heathside School in Weybridge, won Sprint kayaking national championships in August.

He was later chosen to represent Britain Team GB at the Hopes Regatta last month in the K1 (single) K2 (doubles) and K4 (fours) events.

Rory will now go on to train with the England National Training Squad for sprint kayaking — his preferred discipline.

Rory trains with the Addlestone Canoe Club, whose head coach Wendy Dodson praised his achievements and latest call up.

"Rory put in an excellent performance at the Nationals this summer, especially as this was his first year in the Under 18 category, where he was racing boys almost two-years older.

"He trains very hard and has an excellent attitude towards training and racing, training 6-8 times a week and sometimes on his own.

"He trains and races for the Club and we are all very proud of what he has achieved," she said.
