16 young athletes from the Hamilton area competed in the 45th International Children’s Games in Lanarkshire Scotland from August 3-8, 2011.  Overall 1300 athletes from 33 countries and 77 cities competed in 9 sports.  The Hamilton Team competed in the sports of Athletics, Soccer, and Swimming.

The Team won 1 silver and 2 bronze medals, plus achieved some personal bests.

We’ll always remember the warmth of the Lanarkshire community, their tremendous hospitality and spirit, and the many friendships we created with athletes/coaches from around the world.

Congratulations to all!
