Sports Award for St John’s rower

One of the School’s top rowers, Ardan Suphi (Lower Fifth, East House), has been recognised at the Elmbridge Sports Personality of the Year awards ceremony.

At the event on Friday 6 November, Ardan and his rowing partner Thomas Philpott, were awarded Youth Sports Team of the Year trophy, beating off some very strong teams from a number of sports clubs and schools across the borough. The boys were presented their accolade by star guest at the ceremony Fionnuala Gannon, who represented Great Britain in the World Rowing Junior Championships in August.

Ardan, who races for Walton Rowing Club, has triumphed at a number of tournaments in recent months, including the South of England Indoor Rowing Championships in February and the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta in April of this year.

Director of Sport at St John’s, Lauren Moors commented: “Many congratulations to Ardan, this is a great example that hard work and commitment pays off. He makes so much effort to train hard for countless events, and has done himself and St John's proud.”
