Young Brickies Shine at National WorldSkills Competition


Over the past week brickies from all over have converged on Melbourne showgrounds to fight it out for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at the National WorldSkills Australia Competition. The calibre of bricklaying competitors was extremely high and all competitors put all they had into producing their best in the three days of the competition.

Further to this, all of the judges were extremely impressed by how each of the bricklaying competitors conducted themselves and promoted the trade to the huge crowd that came through.


Australian Sam Spong wins Bricklaying Bronze at WorldSkills against world’s best

Sam Spong has won a Bronze medal at the WorldSkills International 2015 competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The medal was a great result and a reward for Sam’s dedication and hard work in preparing for the event this past year. Sam scored 524 points out of a possible 600, only seven points behind the winner from Italy and two points off Silver.

The competition was very even and hard fought with the 27 competitors challenged by the complexities of the three separate project designs, some of which were changed or replaced prior to the start of the event.
