Paddington’s Tin-Tin Ho is celebrating winning three gold medals at the 2014 Sainsbury’s School Games in Manchester.
The Commonwealth Games silver medalist helped the England South East girls’ squad to claim the team title, and she added a second gold as the South East clinched the overall crown once results from the girls’, the boys’ and disabled events had been added up.
Ho then made it a golden hat-trick when she won the individual singles title.
The 16-year-old, who lives in Upbrook Mews and used to attend St Joseph’s Catholic School in Maida Vale, won all six group matches in the team event, only dropping one set on the way – and she added three doubles victories.
In the individual competition, Ho cruised through the group and her first two knockout matches without dropping a set.
