The East London FInal yesterday proved to be a thriller ! Current London Wide champions Barking & Dagenham were edged out in a nervy competitive East London Final that went down to the wire. The team from Newham made up from 6 schools won both Athletics events at the end of the day to pip B&D by 4 points overall, who had triumphed in Boccia, Kurling and Polybat.
Redbridge put in a very credible performance in 3rd winning Table Cricket on the way, and new entrants Bexley in their first Final competed very well.
Liz Johnson (Paralympic Swimming Gold Medallist) was on hand to award medals and inspire the athletes. (See her thoughts on her day in the Blog section)
Newham go through to represent the East in the London Final on June 16th.
Well done to all 150+ competitors for a great days sport !
Team Newham – Champions !
