From training in Leicester to World Cup glory, Jonny Walton (pictured 2nd right) achieved greatness this weekend.
The former GO GOLD Ambassador won Gold in the Quadruple Sculls at the World Cup in Poznan, Poland which what has been dubbed as a 'world class time'.
Supported by the GO GOLD Funding Programme, Walton has so far competed at the Olympics representing Team GB, but his victory at the weekend marks his greatest achievement yet. Competing alongside Jack Beaumont, John Collins and Peter Lambert, Walton was a part of the crew which raced to victory with plenty of time to spare in Poznan.
During his time as a part of the GO GOLD Programme, Walton received valuable funding which helped to purchase equipment, attend international events and further his training whilst still in education. For more information on GO GOLD, visit www.lrsport.org/gogold.
