Young people from Bromley have been crowned the winners of this year's London Youth Games.

Team Bromley, organised and funded by Mytime Active, won the tournament for the second year in a row.

After nine months of intense competition, which started with Cross Country in November, the 2017 London Youth Games came to a close this on Sunday at Crystal Palace national sports centre.

Sasha Dickson, Team Bromley organiser, said: "We are delighted with this result and to be the champions once again. This year we had over 400 young people competing in the games and worked with over 70 volunteers. This wouldn’t have been possible without them, so a huge thank you to all the young people, volunteers, coaches and parents for their continuous support, hard work and dedication."

The London Youth Games is Europe’s largest sporting festival with all 33 London Boroughs competing in over 40 sports including judo, cricket, tennis & netball.

It was introduced in 1977 to mark the silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, this year marks their 40th anniversary and Team Bromley’s eighth win overall.

Team Bromley entered the finals weekend on Saturday in 7th position overall and managed to claim gold in girls swimming and a bronze in the boys, as well as picking up valuable points across a number of other sports.

The winning streak continued into ‘Super Sunday’ with Bromley teams winning gold in girls sand boys athletics and girls hockey, along with top three finishes in seven other sports.

For the second year running it all came down to the boys squash final, where Bromley secured 1st place and claimed the overall title from rivals Wandsworth by just four points.
