A young Te Wharekura o Mauao student is striving for gold at this year's Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires this October. 

Westerly Ainsley is one of four to be named in this year's team. 

He achieved that when we were named on the national squad for wrestling representing NZ at the Youth Olympics in Argentina. 

The Tauranga Moana local has been involved in the sport for five years. 

One of the difficulties of achieving greatness in sports is that often academic rigour is put to the side. 

The games take place in October.
