03 May Student Success in Speedskating

Luke Denton and his twin sister Zena are Year 9 students at
Nayland College. They have been Speedskating for the past four years and have both
competed successfully at a national level. 

Luke was selected to represent New Zealand at the OCEANIA Inline Speedskating Championships held in Brisbane over Easter. This is his 2nd year representing NZ internationally and, after many long months of intensive training, fundraising and support, he brought home three bronze and one silver medals. 

Luke’s Mum, Alana Denton is understandably proud of her high-achieving son.   “This has been a fantastic and fun experience for Luke and we are very proud of him. Not only because of his competition success, but also his amazing determination and the many comments we have received regarding his good sportsmanship and how he conducts himself in general,” she said.

Well done Luke!
