A group of year 9, 10 and 11 students recently took part in the Greater Manchester County Games Indoor Rowing Competition Finals at Oldham Sport for All Centre.
Having already taken part in the competition in its earlier stages and having proven their mettle we were invited to the finals.
The teams were; Braxton, Fahad, Kais and Morgan who represented the year 9 boys. Aasia, Angelina, Anita and Princess represented the year 10 girls. Aaron, Irfan, Mardin and Marvellous represented the year 11 boys.
The star of the show was Princess, who had a tough start to her race with her foot coming loose and she ended up 10 seconds behind everyone else. Despite this, and despite falling off the rowing machine three times she showed unbelievable resilience and rowed to a photo finish winning 1st place.
The year 9 boys swept aside all competition taking all podium places, Morgan in particular finished nearly 50 metres in front.
The relay races showed the collaborative spirit of our students with all groups finishing in podium places, either 1st or 2nd. It was great seeing our students cheering each other on with such passion and showing support to their peers.
The results were as follows:
Year 9 boys: Singles:
1st Morgan 2nd Fahad 3rd Kais
Relay: 1st place
Year 10 Girls:
Singles: 1st Princess
Relay: 2nd place
Year 11 boys:
Singles 3rd Marvellous
Relay 1st place
