NARINGAL aerobics star Brenton Andreoli has claimed his first European championships title.

Andreoli, 20, combined with aerobics partner Katerina Smejkalova to win the FISAF mixed pairs category for the Czech Republic in Vienna, Austria.

The win is the latest in a string of achievements for the former Emmanuel College student, who is these days living in Prague.

He made history as the youngest FISAF world champion in history when he won the men’s solo title as a 17-year-old in 2010.

Two more international gold medals came in 2013 when he claimed the men’s solo and mixed pairs classes at Belgrade, Serbia.

Andreoli stayed in Europe to coach aerobics after the 2013 world championships but had planned to retire from elite-level competition. But his time in the Czech Republic has kept him fit and officials convinced him to team up with Smejkalova for the European championships.

Andreoli was unable to be contacted yesterday but his father John said his son was “loving it over there”.

He said Andreoli was working with a Prague tour company and running pub crawls to earn a living alongside his coaching.
