Kavindu Ranasinghe and Robert Walter were named as joint winners of the first ever Wembley National Stadium Trust (WNST) Primary-Aged Achievers Award in 2014.
The award was created to celebrate Panathlon’s youngest competitors. It builds on the success of the Jack Petchey Outstanding Achievement Awards, which recognise the achievements of our secondary-aged competitors.
The second year saw Sophie Wood, of William Bellamy School, win the Wembley National Stadium Trust Outstanding Achievement Award. Sophie was persuaded to try sport through Panathlon three years ago and became an instant inspiration to other pupils who have a fear of trying new activities. She is now first on the list for the boccia club at school and volunteers as a young leader at a lunchtime sports club for the younger children.
This year Aminata Kalokoh, an eight-year-old girl from Sierra Leone who suffers from severe physical and communication problems, won Panathlon’s Wembley National Stadium Trust 2017 ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award. Aminata was presented with her award at the Panathlon London and South East Primary Finals at the Copper Box Arena at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
