Panathlon team wins West London Panathlon final at Featherstone High School to reach London-wide final
Disabled athletes from across the borough powered to victory to win first prize in a regional athletics competition.
Harrow’s Panathlon team competed in the West London Panathlon final at Featherstone High School in Ealing to qualify for the London final on June 19.
There were 102 disabled children from 15 schools taking part in six sports and they beat challengers from Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing and Hillingdon.
Harrow was represented by students from Shaftesbury, Whitmore and Kingsbury High school.
They won boccia, table cricket, kurling, polybat, and athletics field and races.
Paralympians Helen Turner and Louise Sugden presented medals to the successful Panathletes and inspired the children with tales of London 2012.
Panathlon is a charity that provides multi-sport competition for over 3,000 disabled children each year, mostly across London and the south-east.
This year 125 London schools from all 32 boroughs will be involved, with 15,000 active hours of sport provided to disabled children.
