Ayende achieves sheer excellence in sport
Hackney Community College Sports student Ayende Jamal Lewis became one of the first in the UK to achieve the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence – a specialist sports course for young athletes.
The 19 year old, from Hackney, successfully completed the two year course in his chosen sport discipline – basketball.
Ayende who was a member of last year’s double trophy winning men’s basketball team from HCC’s hugely successful Basketball Academy, intends to further study and play in America next year.
The avid LA Lakers fan said: “ It has been a good two years at Hackney Community College. I’ve achieved one more qualification and am very proud of myself. Thanks to the tutors for all their support.”
