Rainham pupil Rheanna Oberius bagged herself a silver medal at the London Youth Games.

Oberius, who attends La Salette Catholic Primary School, competed in the 25 metre junior backstroke ParaGames Swimming event and finished in a time of 35:47 to finish runner-up at Beckenham Spa and Leisure Centre on Wednesday.

The youngster was also the only representative from Havering at the event.

Havering BTO Michelle Gustavsen said: “Rheanna did an amazing performance winning a silver medal.

“She brought her parents along for support and they all had a good day.”

Havering will be looking to stay amongst the medals in tennis finals, while they’ll also be looking for success in the badminton, hockey, fencing and squash qualifiers at the Redbridge Sports Centre this weekend.

The qualifiers will determine which competitors and boroughs go through to the finals weekend at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre next month.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
