Last weekend, as previously reported, Lauren O’Brien (Year 10) represented Yorkshire at the UK School Games in London. The Yorkshire cycling team of four girls and four boys won the gold medal and were crowned as the Inter-Regional Road Champions. Lauren herself won two bronze medals in the individual events, ending the weekend exhausted but very proud of her achievements and those of the team.
The last day of the competition was held at the Olympic Velodrome in London, as part of the pre-Olympics test events. Lauren competed in the team sprint, which means two laps of the track with a partner, each taking turns to lead for a lap. Very well done, Lauren, and many congratulations on your excellent progress in cycling this year!
