The IQFoil International Games took place from 19th-24th October in Lake Garda, Italy. One of the 118 competitors attending was Sixth Form student Finn.

Finn triumphed and became the first ever U19 IQFoil World Champion. The young windsurfer also won 2nd place in the U21s and 14th overall against the seniors.

Finn said: “It was an amazing event with some intense and exciting racing, I’m very happy to be the best in my age category but more excited for my progress in the senior fleet as I’m getting closer to my end goal of winning a medal at the Olympics.”

Director of Sport, Mr Sanderson added: “What a fantastic way to start the new half term, welcoming a new world champion back to Truro School. Finn has achieved something remarkable and we are extremely proud to have him with us at Truro School. To win the U19s, place 2nd in the U21s and to compete strongly in the seniors, shows what an incredible talent Finn has. We wish him continued success and he deserves everything he achieves, as Finn works incredibly hard to attain such a high standard.”

The IQFoil is a new windsurf product design that has recently won the campaign to be the official equipment used in the Paris Olympics 2024.
