John Farnworth (25) is an International Football Freestyle Champion from Lancashire who travels the world inspiring people; young and old. Aside from travelling to more than 30 countries to showcase his World class skills he also spends time working in schools - locally and nationally in a bid to inspire and motivate young people and educate them about leading a fit and healthy lifestyle. Girls, boys, men and women all admire and are in awe of him when he performs. His skills and tricks are amazing and he makes it look so simple. His motto is hardwork and practice. He is a great role model for young people - he doesn't drink or smoke and is a great example of how hard work, dedication and commitment can pay off. He recently completed the Virgin London Marathon but not running/walking - John did keepey upy's the entire way round. It took him more than 10 hours but he didn't give up. It would be John's honour to a torchbearer. His infectious personality is second to none and he strives to be his very best. John holds four Guinness World Records and in September will travel to Southern Africa with a footballing charity which uses football to deliver a health education, HIV testing and life-skills program for orphans and vulnerable children. We would also love to talk to you about John linking up with this relay for his next challenge - he wants to freestyle / do keepey upy's from Land's End to John O Groats and maybe we can tie that into this process?
