Peter Buravytskiy is a talented 14 year old Trampoline Gymnast who is striving for success within his very difficult, but incredible sport. He is a member of the Great Britain High Performance Junior Squad, since he was 11 years old and has competed at numerous regional, national and international Championships. In 2014 he was awarded Kent Trampoline gymnast of the year, in recognition of his hard work. Apart from his young sporting career, Peter is a student at Chatham Grammar School where he also manages to focus and balance his work out with his sporting achievements. In the future Peter hopes to achieve much bigger goals and with his current work ethic and determination, who knows maybe soon we will be seeing him at the Olympics and other major Championships achieving those goals.

Watch a clip of Peter in action below:

Over the past three years KT4YS has given many great opportunities to travel and compete at big events for Great Britain, and via the financial aid has enabled various restrictions to be overcome in order for me to achieve my ambitions as an athlete. Many of the major world events for GB are self funded for juniors including travel, accommodation, national squad training and kit. Some of these factors can create stressful situations, but thanks to the support of KT4YS, the trustees and the assistance of Jon Rye I have been able to focus on my training and achieve better results in competition, without enduring financial strain to hinder my performance.

I can truly say that Kent Trust has helped me establish a strong foundation and provided the initial push for me to achieve my long term goals within European, World and Olympic prospects in the future. Consequently this support has driven me more towards the sport, allowing me to showcase aspects of physicality that aren’t possible with traditional sports. My experience of the funding period has been very smooth and consistent, with the same structure in which I provide a report for each half of the year. This habit has also allowed myself to reflect on what I have done, and my developments as time progresses.

Thank you KT4YS, the trustees and Jon for all that you have done for me. Your support will be forever cherished and I am very grateful for the opportunity I was given to be a part of the trust, allowing me to develop not only as an athlete but also as an individual.
