Hemel Hempstead athlete Ondine Achampong triumphed at a national awards ceremony on November 7, taking home the National Champion of the Year award.

Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions Awards were hosted by hurdles legend Colin Jackson CBE at Porchester Hall in Bayswater, London. The scheme has helped thousands of athletes by providing free access to Everyone Active’s leisure facilities.

Ondine, now aged 19, embarked on her gymnastics journey at the age of three and utilises the facilities at Hemel Hempstead Leisure Centre.

Steve Cox, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “Our congratulations go to Ondine on a fantastic year and a well-deserved award.

“The Sporting Champions scheme has been very successful in providing support to emerging talent.

“It’s fantastic to see how the scheme has expanded over the years, now providing more than 1,400 athletes nationwide with access to top-quality training facilities and support.”

Previously, Ondine won the Sporting Achiever award at the MyLocalHero awards in 2022.
