Douay win at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre
For Year 7 it was first taste of a final and were all extremely excited about the opportunity to compete at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre with fantastic facilities.
This was second year running Year 8 had reached the final and they were looking to build on the experience of last year and improve on their results.
On the day both squads rose to the challenge despite injuries, due to other sporting activities.
Both teams gave their all in every single events, with some very good individual performances.
Elisha Gyamfi won the 2 lap race and Ariel Savage won the 4 lap race.
This accumulated with other good results allowed the Year 8 boys to finish 3rd overall coming back to Douay Martyrs with bronze medals.

Don Awotwi 8G "Brilliant day was not expecting to come third overall and come away with a medal."
