We’re absolutely delighted to announce that a former student of ours, Georgina Adam, has been named as Sportswoman of the Year at this year’s Lincolnshire Sports Awards!
The evening was full of celebrations for our sprinting star Georgina, who fended off competition from two other finalists to win the Sportswoman of the Year title – and was also the youngest nominee in her category.
This year’s prestigious awards ceremony took place on Thursday 1st November at the Lincolnshire Showground, where over 350 people from sports clubs, businesses and schools gathered to celebrate sportspeople, volunteers, coaches and clubs from across the county who have accomplished fantastic sporting achievements in the last year.
Georgina, who is from Lincoln, was a student here at North Kesteven Academy up until this summer when she completed her A-levels. She’s had a very successful 12 months and has represented Great Britain in both the 200m and 4x100m in the under 20s age group, where she finished the season with four different championship titles.
It’s without a doubt that Georgina has trained and worked extremely hard for everything that she’s achieved this year – and we’re delighted to have been able to play a small part in supporting her sprinting career ambitions.
Georgina is continuing to excel in her sporting career and is now studying for an Applied Sports Science degree at Loughborough College while training at Loughborough University alongside UK sprint coach Jonas Tawiah Dodoo, who is best known for his involvement in training Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford.
To be named as Lincolnshire’s Sportswoman of the Year at the age of 18 is a fantastic achievement! Everyone here at NK Academy is so proud of all that Georgina has achieved both in her time as a student with us and in her personal career. We’re sure that this won’t be the last we hear of her – good luck for the future Georgina!
