Olympic success for Ysgol Bro Gwaun

1600 elite school-age athletes took part in the 2012 Youth Olympics, which took place during the 6th and 9th May, with more than 30,000 spectators at the Olympic Park, London

Students from around the UK competed in 12 Olympic and Paralympic sports including, athletics, swimming, cycling, fencing, rugby sevens, gymnastics, hockey, badminton, judo, table tennis, volleyball and wheelchair basketball.

A small group of students from Ysgol Bro Gwaun, led by Mr Simon Roach and Mrs Wendy Davies had a real once in a lifetime opportunity to watch athletes compete in such amazing events.

The Ysgol Bro Gwaun group were successful in their application for tickets to watch a full day of athletics in the Olympic Stadium. There experience in the Olympic Park was enhanced by the inspirational volunteers and helpers; and also by the Olympic values of respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination, inspiration and equality which were so evident in the competitions.

The Ysgol Bro Gwaun group supported on one of their own pupils, Amy Leahy year 10, who was competing in the 80m Hurdles. Amy being a year under age in her category performed a Personal best in the 80m Hurdles and gained a 4th position in this prestigious competition.

A second student from Ysgol Bro Gwaun also competed in the 2012 Youth Olympics, Chloe Sinnott year 13. Chloe demonstrated excellent leadership qualities in her role of Team Captain for Team Wales Hockey. Chloe’s performances in all the matches were exceptional and she was awarded Best Welsh Player of the Tournament.

Both Amy and Chloe have returned to Fishguard to continue their studies and hard training for their up and coming events.

 


Report by Amy Leahy
From the 6th-9th May of 2012, I had the privilege of travelling to London to compete in the Sainsbury’s 2012 School Games. The School Games is a multi-sport event which consists of teams from Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England coming together to compete in 12 different sports. The games was a once in a lifetime experience and especially this year in particular as it was held in the Olympic Village, with the athletics, cycling and swimming being held in the actual Olympic Stadiums before they are used in the summer.

The 6th of May saw all teams from every sport come together for the opening ceremony, which was held in the ExCel Centre in the village, where the majority of the sports took place. The Ceremony was opened by triple jump world record holder Johnathan Edwards and Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson, who welcomed everybody to the games and spoke of their experiences as athletes. The ceremony then finished with Lord Sebastian Coe coming to the stage to also speak of his personal experiences and wish everybody luck for the games.

Day 2 and 3 of the games saw all the sports begin, apart from those being held on the Olympic venues, and as my sport is athletics, I was able to watch a variety of sports such as volleyball, judo and gymnastics. I was also able to try out new sports such as wheelchair basketball which I never of thought I would have had the opportunity to experience. Day 2 also gave me the opportunity to attend ‘an evening with’ which saw stars such as Jason Gardener attend with his Olympic Gold medal.

          
Finally, the last day of the games saw my chance to compete in the Olympic Stadium, where I hurdled my way to fourth place, in a personal best time. The opportunity to even visit the stadium is amazing but to actually have competed on the track before the professionals such as Usain Bolt and Jessica Ennis is surreal. Running for Wales for the first time on the Olympic track is an experience that will stay with me forever and when I’m watching the stars run on the track in the summer, I’m able to say that I’ve run on that same track before them.
