TEENAGE sporting heroes were honoured last week at Living Sport's annual Cambridgeshire sports awards, with gymnast Louis Smith winning Sports Personality of the Year. Smith, 18, was crowned British under-18s all-round champion and pommel medalist this year, while Huntingdon Olympic Gym team-mate Marissa King, 16, claimed the British title on the vault. Marissa won Young Sports Personality of the Year at the awards on Thursday, sponsored by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, and Archant, the parent group of The Hunts Post. Another success for Huntingdon Olympic Gym was Dr Hilary Dixon, a volunteer trainer who guides gymnasts competing at county and regional level, who won the Unsung Hero award. David Humphrey, 17, who plays cricket for Eaton Socon, won Young Community Volunteer, while Piranhas Swimming Club member Lauren Steadman, 14, from Sawtry, won Sports Performer with a Disability. Lauren, who has a prosthetic right arm, started competitive swimming last year and won gold medals in all eight events when she competed in the Eastern Region disabled swimming events in Lowestoft. She was called up to the GB squad this year and took part in the Danish open in Esbjerg, collecting a gold medal, four silvers and two bronzes. Lauren has also represented the Eastern region in UK schools games, where she won three of her races and set two new UK schools games records. Lauren has won a scholarship to Kelly College in Devon. Louis is a Commonwealth gold medallist and has twice been European champion, and a bronze medallist at the World Championships in Stuttgart. He started training at the Olympic Gym aged six and has high hopes for next year's Olympics in Beijing. He was surprised and delighted to win.
