Run over a fortnight from August 17 - September 02 2012 and with more than 35 various thrilling and often death defying games, the inaugural
World Alternative Games
is the place to be for our dare-devil sporting champion Dame Julia!

Dame Julia excelled herself in this, the first such games to be held, given the Olympics were also on in London our Dame Julia decided that she was also going to "Go For Gold" for the Principality and she hurled herself (and dragged screaming many others with her) into as many games as possible thus giving her the most opportunities possible to win that gold and win she did!

Not only did Julia win that gold but she also won silver and four bronzes!

A PHR and Dame Julia record (let alone personal best)!

Here is the Tally of wins for Dame Julia and the PHR:
