Kayaking bronze medal for Amaya!

Congratulations to Amaya (Year 7) who competed in the London Youth Games and won a Bronze medal in the Kayak Slalom.

Amaya explains more: 

"The London Youth Games are a competition between London boroughs in multiple different sports. My club was representing Bromley Borough in kayaking. I competed in the Kayak Slalom Female Junior category.

In Kayak Slalom there are poles hanging over the lake/river and the kayaker needs to go around and through them in a certain order and as fast as possible. I won a Bronze medal in this category.

Each sport in the London Youth Games is played at different venues on different days. The kayaking event took place at the Lee Valley White Water Centre in Hertfordshire which was built to host the 2012 Olympic Games. The London Youth Games lasted the entire day with everyone cheering each other on and the weather being brilliant! I had such a great time and it was an amazing experience".​
