Hayden Christian is an accomplished sporting athlete who enjoys training and performing for Hampton. HSC caught up with him earlier this year.
Hayden’s main sport is Long Jump, in which he has excelled since the age of 11.
Hayden has competed in many events in England and has a personal best of 5.01m, ranking him very high for his age group.
But despite his recent success he does not believe that there is a future for him in the sport – all other competitors are very well developed and are able to jump further than him.
He also told us that he enjoys technical sports making the athlete think about their jump.
Hayden trains in the summer once or twice a week with Mr Lucas, who he enjoys training with. At Woking (his club) he goes to many competitions gradually improving as his season progresses.
In addition to this success he also competes in the pentathlon and is in the top five in England which is another great achievement. We wish him all the best for next season.
