Christ College pupil, Jess Rayner, from Brecon has had a great start to the season over the last few weeks.
Jess, who is in Year 9 at Christ College, has raced in four Division 1 races so far and is currently ranked 2nd in the U14 female in the UK and No. 1 in Wales. Jess put on some impressive performances in Shepperton, West London at the end of March against women of all ages and with much more experience. She came 7th and 6th which resulted her current ranking.
Following on from this, Jess competed at Grandtully, Scotland producing a commendable performance as one of the youngest paddlers on a very challenging and demanding white water course.
Her next race sees her head to the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham this weekend where she will compete on another extremely challenging course which will be new to her. Everyone at Christ College wishes this very talented young lady all the best for the challenges ahead and we’ll be keeping track of her progress as she’s definitely one to watch for the future.
