OUTSTANDING sports performances by students at Bourne Academy were recognised at a special assembly attended by Olympic torchbearer Dan Dring.

The south Lincolnshire marathon runner, who has raised thousands of pounds in recent years for cancer charity CLIC Sargent, presented trophies for the best performances at the academy’s sports day held in Boston.

A number of students broke records, including Megan Pusey who took two seconds off the 300 metres record and earned herself the Fred Riddy Trophy.

The Ulyatt Shield for the best performances by senior boys and girls went to Nathan Davies and Eve Hilliam Cooke respectively, while the junior winners were Tom Maker and Georgia Bainbridge.

Meanwhile, Liam Gibson lifted the Glover Memorial Cup for the best overall Sports Day performance after winning the 100 metres in record time, 400 metres and discus.
