Kare Wins Young Citizen Of The Year Award

Senior School Sport

Kare Adenegan's remarkable achievements continued earlier this month when she was awarded a Young Citizen of the Year award.

Kare was one of seven remarkable young people from across the UK and Ireland to be honoured at the 10th anniversary of the Rotary Young Citizen Awards, where each winner was being rewarded for making a big contribution to their individual communities.

We congratulate Kare both for this award and also for her immense humility and stature as an ambassador for her sport. On the track, her big dream is undoubtedly to win gold one day, but at the moment Kare is concentrating on gaining experience and a podium finish in every competition.

Off the track, as well as inspiring athletes from every background to believe they can participate and go for gold, Kare is balancing her studies, increased media interest and community involvement in immaculate fashion; Bablake continues to be very proud of her.

On the track Great Britain’s T34 wheelchair racer Kare first made national headlines when she won the London Mini Marathon and then again when, as a 14 year old, she was the first for seven years to beat teammate Hannah Cockcroft, multiple world and Paralympic champion, in a 400m race last year.
