Rygaards International School defended its title at the annual cross country running tournament for international schools in Denmark, which took place on September 18 at the Odense Athletics Stadium.
The Hellerup-based school returned home with yet another overall trophy despite increased competition as 242 children participated this year compared to 160 in 2015.
Students from Rygaards competed with rivals from Esbjerg International School, NGG International School in Hørsholm, Odense International School and Skt Josef’s International School in Roskilde.
Medals were awarded to the top three runners in six categories: boys/girls under-7s (500 metres), under-9s (1,000 m) and under-11s (1,500 m).
The children from Rygaaards International got the most points and thus won the main trophy.
