Cutting Edge - Trophy Kids
Thursday, 26th March 2009
9pm to 10pm
Are sporting stars born or made? And how do you raise a child to be a champion?
Lee Spurling, known professionally as The Wolf, is 12 years old. His devoted parents, Lavinia and Ian, believe that he is the next Tiger Woods and they spend all their time and energy helping their son to become the best in the world. Giving The Wolf a run for his money is the Iceman, Britain's youngest World Golf Champion - nine-year-old Billy Spooner. Billy's dad has turned his back garden into a golfing range for his only son and is always by his side, working as his caddie or offering him fatherly advice.
Eden Silva from Essex is trying to make her mark at the World Under 12 Tennis Championships. But will her skills match up to the expectations of her father Roger. He's given up everything to take a huge gamble on his daughter's talents, but the money is running out and the pressure is getting to him.
Finally in South London lives one of the country's brightest boxing prospects, 15-year-old Charlie Edwards - the Under 16 Champion of Britain. Boxing has taken over his single dad Larry's house. His garage has become a gym. The garden has a full-size ring and there's a sauna in his bedroom. We said single because Mum couldn't take the single minded devotion to promoting the son to be a World Champion and she's moved out.
In all the stories it ranges from being an expression of love for a father to their talented child to wondering what the phone number is for the local Social Services, and then back again. In all cases (just about), the parents really do love their children for being their children; and you feel that they would survive their offspring saying that they wanted to pack in the sport. Though that said I'm not sure that I'd want any of them as my Dad.
