Robert Bateman Secondary School student Andrea Phillips is travelling to France this summer, but it’s for tries and tackles not croissants and cafes.
The Games run from July 6 to 13 and feature athletes competing in badminton, basketball, football, handball and rugby 7s. Young competitors from more than 70 countries are set to battle it out. It’s the fifth edition of the event.
Phillips is one of three B.C. players on the team, and there are also players from Quebec, Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick and Texas.
