Rathfern Gymnasts Represent Lewisham Borough @ the London Youth Games 4/07/19

During the Spring Term Rathfern’s Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 Gymnastics teams both won their Lewisham Borough Finals competition, and today was the day that they represented Lewisham at the London Youth Games.

We arrived at Crystal Palace Sport National Sports Centre feeling a mix of emotions – excitement, anticipation, nervousness. We arrived nice and early so took a few team snaps as we explored the venue…

Up first was the Year 3/4 team, performing their vault, Floor and Body Management routines…

Our Vaulting was a big strength for our team…

Then it was time for our year 5/6 team to compete. They also performed the vault, Floor and Body Management routines…

The vault was incredibly high…


All of our gymnasts performed brilliantly and did Lewisham proud! The hard work and fine tuning really paid off. Out of all the Lewisham Boroughs, our Year 3/4 team came in 14th and our Year 5/6 team in 13th place! What an amazing achievement!

After the two competitions, we had some free time to soak up the fantastic atmosphere at the games. The children competed in a sliding competition hosted by the first ever winning contestant of the gladiators, cycled on an exercise bike to make healthy smoothies, and enjoyed watching dance performances on the live stage.

Well done gymnasts! Hopefully we will be back next year!

London Youth Games Fanfest 

A group of 12 children from KS2 also attended the games as part of a Fanfest group. Children that attended participated in taster sessions of Cricket, Athletics and Softball as well as supporting Lewisham Borough athletes/teams competing in the games. It was a great opportunity to be part of a very special sporting event!
