Dicker: A Successful Summer of Sport
Alongside, the Olympics, Tour de France and the Football European Championships, several members of Dicker's Upper Sixth undertook their own sporting events this summer.
The first big bit of news to share is that James Ravilious, the new Deputy Head of Dicker House, ran 4 marathons in 4 days for 4 charities. Read an interview with him here. Well done James!
Next up, Harry Reilly represented Irish Exiles U18 at rugby in matches against The Irish Regions of Connacht and Munster.
Both matches were won with Harry playing at fly-half and contributing four conversions and a penalty overall.
Harry qualified to play as his Grandfather is Irish.
The team is made up of boys who are qualified to represent Ireland and who reside in England.
Harry is playing again on November 11th vs Welsh Exiles at Deer Park, Richmond.
Lastly, Fred Woodham-Jones also had a summer to remember - working in the Aquatics Centre during the 2012 London Olympic Games!
Fred volunteered to work through his local swimming club.
He carried the swimmers' baskets to and from the pool - not the most glamorous of roles, but being able to watch Phelps, Adlington, Lochte, etc, for free was the experience of a lifetime!
Fred actually got to meet Michael Phelps, and also spent time with Liam Tancock, the Great Britain swimmer.
