Three young athletes from Surrey will be competing for South East England's cycling squad at the 2018 School Games next week. 

The event is multi sport competition for the UK's most talented young athletes from across the country, held at Loughborough University from 30 August to 2 September. 

Among the 1400 participants are three young cycling enthusiasts from Surrey, who will compete for the England South East Squad:

  • Isabella Escalera, aged 15 from Esher, who trains with Velo Club Londres
  • Emma Keiller, aged 15 from Guildford - winner of the 2018 South East Regional Championships
  • Jamie Pullen, a 15-year-old from Redhill who is currently the under-14's South East Road Champion

They will be following in the footsteps of some of Britain's best athletes who competed in the event at the start of their careers, such as Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds and Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty. 

The event will give young athletes across a variety of sports the experience of a high-level, multi-sport competition.

Ali Oliver, Chief Executive Officer of the Youth Sport Trust says: “The School Games National Finals provide a great opportunity for talented young athletes like Isabella, Emma and Jamie,

“Competitors get a real taste of what it’s like to be part of a world-class sporting event at the amazing sporting venues of Loughborough University, and the event is a great way to see our future sporting champions in action today.”
