Avril was a top racer, just dreamlike. Her lineage - it couldn't be better - shows the class of Jos Thoné. Her grandparents are "Volare", "Sheila", "De Deen" and "Nefertete". We like to remember her as one of the fastest pigeons ever on earth.
The famous Olympiad Pigeon and breeding wonder Avril (BE03-5071209) passed away last week. It is no longer necessary to introduce this special bird, as she is already world-famous. Without doubt Avril was one of the fastest pigeons ever raced. In 2007 she was 1. Olympiad Pigeon Speed, won 1. National Acebird Speed LCB, 3 years in a row (2005-2006-2007). She was 2nd provincial Acebird speed KBDB in 2005 and 2nd world champion speed in the same year. Furthermore she won more than 20 first prizes. Above all, she became a breeding wonder, as many of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are real champions. Avril will be remembered for a very long time.
