Overall Winners - Devon Games to Inspire 2013
On Sunday 14th July 2013 Teignbridge took part in the Devon Games to Inspire with hundreds of competitors taking part in 21 different sporting competitions on one day.
Teignbridge pulled out all the stops and fielded every team in every sport, with the maximum number of local children and young people having an opportunity to experience this large Olympic style event.
After a day of competitions, warm ups, tactics, team work, hopes, nerves, excitement, determination, team talks, encouragement, suncream, a few ice creams, laughter, friendships and medals, we all gathered at the closing ceremony for the final results.
Teignbridge were announced the Overall Local Authority Winners in Devon. With Torbay coming 2nd and Exeter 3rd.
