London Youth Games Athletics Final, 7th July 2019, Crystal Palace

The London Youth Games is one of the biggest youth competitions in Europe. It is a competition that runs throughout the year with opportunity to compete in over 46 different sports ranging from football to kayaking! This year Redbridge entered teams in 38 out of the 46 sports available, no mean feat. Last weekend was the finals of the London Youth Games and Beal was involved in the athletics finals. Nikita Savier and Ayden Patel and Tiya Canning – Lawrence were all selected to represent Redbridge in the 4 x 100m relay and I was there as team manager for the girls and boys team. We enjoyed a great day of sport. The event was sponsored for the first time by NIKE and was attended by lots of GB athletes and celebrities who were on hand to offer advice and encouragement to all our athletes. They all seemed to enjoy the media attention.

Redbridge had a very successful day in the athletics finals with the boy’s team achieving silver position and one point away from the gold and the girls were placed 9th in a very closely fought competition. Thanks to the efforts of all the competitors, team managers and volunteers throughout the year Redbridge finished 5th out of the 33 London Boroughs in the overall competition which is a great achievement.
