Luke Hayes is just 13-years-old but already has his sights set on the Olympics after he was chosen to become a member of the pathway Zone Squad.

Luke has been a member of the Wisbech Sea Cadets since he was just 10-years-old and was the standard bearer at the town's most recent remembrance parade.

A spokesman for the sea cadets said: "He was recently introduced to windsurfing and clearly has a talent for it.

"He has been selected to become a member of a Zone Squad which is part of the Olympic pathway selection."
