Final awards at the after games party at Kineton Sports and Social Club 15th July 2012

We had a great evening to celebrate the end of the games at KSSC.  Going into the final day Kineton had a clear lead, but with around 12 medals to be won in the last events the competition for 2nd and 3rd was wide open.

With runners travelling from all over to compete, the results of the half marathon did not change the positions on the medals table.  However the competitors in the Children's Cycling challenge and the Fun Run were nearly all local and this took mad the final results far from certain.

At the start of the day Tysoe were lying in 4th place with 4 gold medals behind Radway in 3rd with 6 golds, Ratley in 2nd with 8 golds and Kineton comfortably in first place with 19 Golds.  Tysoe took Gold and Silver in a hard fought Children's cycling challenge and in the fun run they took Gold again in the under 10's category to take their haul to 6 Gold Medals.

The Full medals table can be seen on 
However, Radway hung on to their 3rd place position by virtue of the higher number of silver medals they had won.  

The final results were: 

First Place
Kineton.  The trophy was received by Chris Mills - Gold Medal winner in the raft race

Second Place
Ratley.  The trophy was received by Sue Backhouse and Owen Todd - Multiple Gold medal winners in the Battle of the clans and the Cyclo-sportive hill climb challenge

Third Place 

Radway.  The Trophy was received by Puffin Pocock - games organiser and competitor in several events

Well done to everyone that competed in the events and thank you to the huge team of people that helped to organise/marshal/referee/cater/support the events.

A big thank you to Pavilion for the music at the after games party, to Alan, Jane, Julian and Adrian for sorting out the bar and the BBQ and to KSSC for hosting us yet again!

We are currently sorting out the final finances for the games and hope to be able to publish the amount raised for sport relief shortly.
