Bay of Plenty athletes at the annual AIMS Games tournament have capped off an incredible week of sportsmanship by reminding Tauranga crowds what makes them the best-of-the-best.

The 15th Anchor AIMS Games began on Sunday with a total of 10,851 athletes from 326 schools showing up to take part in 22 different sports.

Today marks the last day of the tournament which has seen young footballers, hockey players and rugby sevens teams take to the field to top off a great week.
