Ryan Brings Home The Gold!

Team Havelock participated in the annual National Junior Indoor Rowing Competition in London and Ryan Thompson won a gold medal!


Havelock had 8 students selected to represent the trust at the NJIRC 2016 and they all performed incredibly well. Ryan Thompson, Alex Kirton & Jack Mills represented the boys and Kacey Whyte, Chloe Hutson, Dannika Wells, Kiera Swain & Joanna Dlugoszewska represented the girls.

Ryan Thompson was up first for the trust in the Year 7 boys 2 minute race and he smashed it! He rowed an incredible 555m and finished 18 metres ahead of second place! Ryan has trained unbelievably hard over the past few months and deserves his gold medal. This was not only Havelock's first ever medallist at a national event but also the first male medallist for the trust as well.

Overall, the day was hugely successful and all the students improved from last year's scores and as a trust we walked away with 3 gold's and 2 bronze medals.
