London Youth Games - Havering finished 7th overall in the Jubilee trophy this year. We had 429 participants across 49 sports competitions. 70 more than last year. We got 25 top 10 placings and 12 top 5 Placings. 48 individual medals, 1 team gold, 2 team silver and 3 team bronze medals. Entered 49 competitions out of 54.

This year LYG introduced a new award called Respect the Games. At each competition boroughs are voting for another borough they think have made an extraordinary effort to be a team player or showed respect for the games. Havering won this award in the girls’ basketball competition. Overall contribution awards go to Team Managers who we felt were instrumental in supporting and contributing to Havering Hurricanes’ success throughout the 40 years of London Youth Games. Viv Allaway had 25 years anniversary.
