Upminster teenager and Barking & Dagenham College student takes two golds in Hertfordshire

Upminster’s Olly Beadle has continued his preparations for the upcoming Special Olympic National Games by winning two golds at the Learning Disability Regional Tournament in Hertfordshire.

The 17-year-old, who trains at Cranston Park, was triumphant in both the singles event and men’s doubles.

Beadle’s display in the singles was particularly impressive as he dropped just four games in his three matches.

The Barking & Dagenham College student will now continue to build up for the National Games later this year.

Beadle will represent the East Region in Sheffield at the event in August, where he will be looking to collect yet more gold medals.

It has been an impressive start to 2017 for the teenager, who was named joint-winner of the Havering Junior Sports Competitor of the Year award in February.

And Beadle will hope there is more success to follow in the coming months to make this year one of his best yet.
