A huge well done to our own Joe Crockett, who came 4th overall in the Junior World Skate Championships!!! An amazing result.

A message from Joe.

From the generosity of everyone who supported me through gofundme, Gnars and Parish Council help, I have been given the opportunity of a lifetime to compete at the world championships of my favourite sport.

Just getting to experience the culture and atmosphere of Buenos Aires alone has been fantastic.

I wish things could’ve gone a little better for me in the final, but all three riders ahead of me deserved their podium places. Hopefully other young sports men and women from the island will get similar opportunities in the future.

Thank you everyone. Thank you very, very much.
