The DBGS U11 BSME team competed in Dubai from March 8th-10th. Starting with athletics, they pitted themselves against eleven other schools in the Middle East in football, netball, swimming and basketball.
A strong opening day saw Shindara Afolabi win the girl’s 150m sprint and Advaith Mahesh win gold in the boy’s long jump.
The team didn’t drop out of the top six placings on the second day of events and that was the position they eventually finished the tournament in.
With a third of them able to compete in next year’s event, they will be working hard to close the gap on the top three.
