Success at the London Schools Pentathlon

Congratulations to Elsa (Year 8) and Ella (Year 9) who competed in the London Schools Pentathlon at Lee Valley Stadium.  They achieved a number of personal bests and an individual event win each, finishing in 2nd (Ella) and 7th (Elsa) place for Kent Schools and overall finishing 3rd (Ella) and 8th (Elsa), against some tough competition. 

They also met, and were inspired by, English heptathlete Katrina Johnson-Thompson who was doing some javelin training!  

I train regularly for combined events with Tonbridge AC, so it was great to have the opportunity to compete for TGS. I had a brilliant day, achieving first place in long jump and a number of PBs. What made the day even better was by meeting English heptathlete and British pentathlon record holder Katrina Johnson-Thompson!


 It was amazing to compete for and represent TGS and I enjoyed it so much.
