This is Hud’s story…

I was nominated as Sports Hero for the Bristol Young Heroes award.
What did it mean to you being nominated?
It meant a lot to me being nominated for sporting hero because being recognised was a pleasure in itself.

Being nominated has made think out side the box and its also made me more ambitious. At the awards event itself, I met people who were nominated for so many different things; meeting the people nominated for the young careers was amazing… the story’s the young careers had to tell was amazing.
