17 year old Leonora Tomlinson, from Winchester, is officially the third fastest female speed-stacker in the UK.
Leonora competed in this quirky sport in February, at the UK Sport Stacking National Championships, in Stevenage. The competitors raced against the clock to see who can cup stack the quickest. Leonora competed against 30 other female participants and overall came third place.
Leonora proudly won four medals, with help from her speed-stacking partner James. She is happy to announce that she will be competing in the European Championships in Spain in May and is very excited.
Leonora practices for a minimum three hours a week, and the staff from St Swithun’s school will be demonstrating her skills to her fellow pupils at a Spring fundraising day.
