Students battle in cross-country event
Royal Liberty School held its annual inter-college cross country competition last Friday.
The hotly contested event dates back some 50 years, with trophies for individual winners and team winners.
The main event is the senior boys race, where the 30 best cross-country runners in the School run over two miles and Nathan Addai was the eventual winner after a late challenge in the closing stages from Charlie Bacon.
Addai set a new school record of eight minutes two seconds and the top 10 students in each race will now begin preparations for the Havering Schools competition next month.
Christine Ohuruogu and Mo Farah have been nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
