Massive turnout at annual West Yorkshire School Games
Bradford schoolchildren were among the medals at the West Yorkshire School Games in Leeds.
A total of 1,500 youngsters aged from seven to 17 from 80 schools across the county took part.
The event was held at Leeds Met’s Headingley Carnegie campus and, alongside the sport, there was culture in the form of dancers and roaming storytellers from Tong, Laisterdyke and Temple Moor schools and Kirklees’ Rhythm Steppers.
Nathan Connelly, 17, from Oakbank School, is the West Yorkshire young sporting ambassador.
He paraded an Olympic torch to open the Games and helped out inspiring the volunteers.
He said: “Being involved in sport changed my life. I used to get bullied but got into rugby and sports leadership and worked my way up, so I know how important it is.”
