Young sports stars are celebrating after finishing in the top ten in a city-wide sports competition.

Haringey finished tenth overall in the Balfour Beatty London Youth Games last week after competing in a diverse range of sporting events.

The borough entered teams in 51 events, winning the boys' cross-country and finishing in a top three position in boys and girls volleyball, girls basketball, diving, boys cricket and girls para-games (disabled competition) football.

A total of 600 competitors took part, 150 more than last year, and bagged 1,034 points between them.

Councillor Ann Waters, cabinet member for children and families, said: "Our young sports stars proved they are once again among the best in the capital.

"It was fantastic to see so many taking part this year, and they did Haringey proud."
