Sporting teenagers once again produced a top ten finish at the London youth games.

Enfield’s sporting talent finished eighth out of the 33 London boroughs after competing over the past nine months across 38 different sports.

More than 800 young sporting prodigies took part, with the final competition taking place at Crystal Palace national sports centre on Sunday.

Enfield won two gold medals for mini swimming and aquathlon.

Enfield Council’s cabinet member for culture, sport, youth and public health, Councillor Rohini Simbodyal, said: “The young people who have represented Enfield in this year’s London Youth Games are a credit to the borough and have demonstrated enormous commitment and enthusiasm in representing each and every one of us in the London Youth Games.

“I’d also like to thank the coaches and parent of all our entrants for their hard work and dedication in helping our young people achieve this result.

“Sport is a brilliant way of getting fit, meeting new people and leading a healthier lifestyle and now that summer finally seems to have arrived I’d encourage everyone to dust off their trainers and get active.

“Enfield has a rich sporting heritage, boasting three Olympic medallists and we have uncovered many sporting heroes of the future amongst this year’s London Youth Games entrants.”
