Welcome to the Results of the H2G2 Water Games - sponsored by the:
The Waterworks

Forty-two events took place across three great, World-Class h2g2 venues, three a day every day for the entire Olympic fortnight. Now we announce who actually has won the coveted Gold Medals.

And the Gold Medalists Are

As the winner's towels are hoisted up the flagpoles of honour, the h2g2 National Anthem, 'Journey of the Sorcerer', plays in the background, bringing a tear to each and every witnesses' eyes.

The Beach

Here the sea is always warm next to the golden, 5-mile long sandy, sheltered coast. It is everything you could ever want out of the perfect beach, with sand perfect for riding horses on or building sandcastles with. Round the cove from where the river reaches the sea is a wilder, windy area where an off-shore coral reef creates perfect waves for windsurfing.

Here is the wreck of a pirate ship, now home to fish of all shapes, sizes and colours, but the fabulous treasure is said to still be aboard.

The Swimming Pool

Renowned for its large fun pool, where there are waterslides, wave machines, rapids, fountains, waterguns, large walk-through showers, tipping buckets, a hottub, diving boards - everything any swimming pool could want, including a poolside bar.

An Olympic swimming pool has been constructed next door, with a new diving complex too.

The River

A wide, deep river that starts off at the pond, flows through the Moxonwood forest before reaching the Municipal Park and goes out to sea by the beach. Over the river at its deepest point is an impressive stone viaduct. This not only carries the local rail branch line but also a footpath and cycleway. This is a traditional spot not only for pooh-sticks, but also for bungee jumping and the annual Birdman event.
