A rock-climbing teen will reach new heights when he represents Team GB twice in one week.
Luke Murphy, who climbs at ROKT Climbing Gym in Brighouse, will travel to Poland next month after making the elite bouldering squad.
Luke, 18, will represent the UK in the fight for the European Cup on July 29.
But climbing higher still, Luke will also go on to climb for Britain three days later at the European Championships in Austria on August 2nd.
Luke, who is from Hebden Bridge, began climbing at ROKT five years ago.
The centre is based in the towering former flour silos in Millroyd Street and is now backing Luke by financially supporting him for travel fees to the competitions.
Luke said: “Representing your country is what any athlete wants to achieve, so to have two major tournaments back-to-back is going to be incredible.
“I can’t wait to get there and it’s the first thing I think of when I wake up every day. The tournaments can’t come too soon.”
He added: “The team at ROKT have been brilliant.
“Now I’m representing them and Yorkshire as well as Team GB, and I think we’ve got a great chance of coming away with something this summer.”
Bouldering, which is what Luke practices, is a form of climbing which features no ropes or harnesses.
Euan Noble, ROKT’s commercial director, said: “It’s quite emotional for us at ROKT to be honest, as we’ve seen Luke come on so much in the last few years since he walked in.
“He honed his skills here and we quickly saw his raw talent and helped nurture it.
“Luke is a complete athlete. He loves what he does, trains hard and always enjoys climbing.
“He deserves every bit of success he gets and making Team GB this summer is just incredible. We’re so proud.”
