Brodie Williams was crowned TS5C’s Young Sports Achiever of the Year Award at this year’s Somerset Activity & Sports Awards.
19 year old Brodie is part of the Millfield School training programme, the same programme that Olympic medallist and World Champion James Guy undertook, and is coached by former international swimmer Euan Dale.
Last weekend saw the start of the new handball season and not only a step up to under 19s and men's handball, but a new team to get used to as I am now playing for Stroud.
I was looking forward to the increased phyisical and stamina demands as the games are 60 minutes as opposed to 40 minutes at under 16 level.
After a successful, but exhausting 5 day tournament in Viborg, Denmark at the beginning of August with The England Lions Under 16 Handball Team, my pre season training has been combined with working at 1610 Glastonbury Leisure Centre as an Activities Assistant.
