Two Year 10 students, David Kelly and Carter Edwards, volunteered to take part in the vigorous qualifying process to represent the UK in the National Kayaking competition.
David and Carter represented England South at the School Games 2018 finals for Indoor Kayak at Loughborough University. Carter came in at 1 minute and 9 seconds and David came in third overall at 56.2 seconds, with the eventual winner coming in at 48.1 seconds. This was an absolutely fantastic result, considering neither boy had used the kayak machine before the try outs.
The following day, England South won Gold in the relay, with David and Carter accompanied by two students from Gordon’s School.
