CHAMPION wrestler Jack Brown made history at the Skelton Show in Cumbria when he completed a unique grand slam.

The 23-year-old, from Langley, won the 15st championship, and in doing so became the first competitor to add his name to all senior championships with the Cumberland & Westmorland Association.

The prolific Brown added the 15st title to his previous wins at 10 1/2st, 11st, 12st, 13st, 14st, and all weights, but the achievement was no mean feat.

To win the 15st prize, Brown had to get the better of Graham Brocklebank, who held the 15st title over four consecutive years prior to Sunday’s final.

Brown has enjoyed a successful year so far. Back in April, both he and Brocklebank represented England at the European Championships in Celtic wrestling, and achieved both individual and team success.

The former Haydon Bridge High School pupil, who also holds three world championships titles, has been competing since the age of 10.

He is a familiar face at local shows, and will be looking to add to his titles at Haltwhistle Carnival this weekend.

A spokesman for the Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling Association said: “Congratulations to Jack Brown who made history today at Skelton Show. What an achievement.”

Brown’s proud father Josie said: “Jack’s performance at Skelton earned him a full house.

“He loves his wrestling and works very hard at it, and is looking forward to competing at Haltwhistle on Sunday.”
