Medal Winner Lexie Going For Gold

Despite revising for, and sitting, her GCSEs Lexie managed to take silver and bronze medals in the All Kent Schools Athletics competition held over the weekend of 9th June. The Hales House student joined other athletes at The Julie Rose Stadium in Ashford and threw 17.83m in the Discus and a fantastic 26.43m in the Hammer Throwing competition. Lexie has now been selected for the Inter County competition which takes place on 9th July in London and hopes to take the Gold medal there. She trains 3 nights a week and Hammer throwing is, by far, her favourite sport and it appears that she is very good at it!
