Gabriel aims highThu 23 Mar 2017
Snowboarding Wrekin College pupil Gabriel Adams is having a very successful season so far. He has competed in a number of international competitions and has entered the overall category in most to get maximum points to propel him towards Olympic qualification.
He is currently ranking fifth Overall Men across all age groups in the UK and trying to work his way up. He is fourth on the World Rookie Tour rankings worldwide under 18. He was invited to the German and Austrian Masters as he was ranked 11th overall in Austria and therefore was asked to this invitation-only competition which was quite an accolade. He came second in the under 18s and ninth overall which was most impressive as it was a massive international field.
Gabriel awaits for confirmation as to whether he can compete in the World Juniors in the Czech Republic. He has also qualified for the Q Parks final on 16th April and the World Rookie Tour Final on 4th April.
He has had a fantastic sponsorship opportunity as Ford UK came forward to offer him a vehicle to support him and get him to competitions which has been a great tie-in.
Well done Gabriel!
