Cornwall School Games 2014

What a fantastic event! With 3000 competitors and 109 in the aquathlon alone, Tilly, Elliot, George, Ella and Joris felt a little nervous at the grand opening. Heart FM along with Team GBs volley ball player Lucy Boulton opened the games at a magnificent ceremony at Richard Lander School in Truro. The swim and cycle event they were competing in was held at Truro Schools Ben Ainslie Sports Centre. The bits started in the pool and the girls were in the bikes then it was time to swap. A 200m swim isn’t far for our swimmers but its tough without a warmup. The cycle of 1.5 miles on a bike was even harder set in a gym that was 26degrees! All our athletes did amazingly well and enjoyed the other spectacular events that were also going in as part of the games.
