GEORGE Ramm is one of the youngest members of the England wrestling team and is the latest starlet to come off the production line at the Sharples club.
The 17-year-old has already enjoyed lots of success this year and is making strides in the senior ranks.
The former Turton School pupil will go into the Commonwealths in fine form after coming third in the British Seniors at 60kg and was the highest placed Englishman in his weight class. He went the full distance with both opponents who finished above him, narrowly losing out on points.
Elsewhere, at the start of 2014 he won bronze at an event in Austria .
Rio remains one of his big targets for 2016 but the Commonwealth Games offers him a chance for big-time experience.
He is sponsored by LoveEnergySavings and is excited about his call-up.
He said: “This is my first Games and being selected for Team England is a real privilege.
“Being the same environment as great athletes from around the world will be a fantastic experience and a great learning curve.”
The many achievements in his fledgling career include being four-time English junior champion, two-time British junior champion and taking bronze in the English Seniors.
Ramm also topped the podium in the 20th Masters tournament in Ville de Roubaix as well as earning a silver medal at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival and bronze at the Latvia Cup.
