After 27 event days and 80 competitions across 30 sports, Kingston's final standing in the Balfour Beatty London Youth Games was 18th out of the 33 boroughs competing.
Medal winning performances this year came from both the girls and boys (pictured) Volleyball teams who made the finals and picked up a Bronze under the management of Richmond Volleyball Club. Five of the boys were subsequently scouted for the South England Squad.
The Finals weekend at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre saw the boys squash team, coached by Michael Hennings of Surbiton Racket & Fitness Club, smash their way to Bronze beating Richmond in their last match.
Three weeks earlier however saw the highlight of Kingston's medal glory as the Kayak Slalom and Mixed Rowing Teams splashed into Silver medal positions.
Kingston has many individual case studies of achievement across all of the sports this year with many young people competing for the first time in their sport; all of these young people have been inspired and continue to play at a local sports club in preparation for next year!
The Active Kingston Team would like to wish all our young athletes the best of luck in the year ahead and send a huge thank you to participants, coaches, team managers and everyone else that has made this year's entry possible.
