Young Haleian wins Hyundai Junior Sports Star Award

Congratulations to Young Haleian Hamish Henriques (2010-18) who has won the 2019 Hyundai Junior Sports Star for his achievements in rowing.

At the recent RAC SportWest Awards held at Optus Stadium, rower Hamish Henriques was crowned the Hyundai Junior Sport Star winner after he teamed with Victorian Harrison Fox to triumph in the under-19 double scull at the World Rowing Junior Championships.

Hamish developed his love for rowing after starting the sport in Year 8 at Hale School.  Understanding just how competitive the sport is fuelled Hamish to learn everything he could to be a better athlete and rower. Resilience, determination and perseverance saw him improve physically and technically each year to become the world champion he is today.

“I had coaches at Hale that inspired me to be ambitious with my rowing,” Hamish said. “This determination has stayed with me to this day.”

Watch this space as Hamish's ultimate goal is to win a gold medal at the Olympics.  We are right behind you Hamish!
