Sportsround Superkids: Week 7

Superkids

Who is better at sport - girls or boys?

Well, Sportsround has a new challenge for some of the sportiest kids in the country.

Each week, one boy and one girl will be challenged to try a sport that they've never done before. Whoever wins will get a point for their side.

The score is currently level, with the boys and girls on three points each.

This week our superkids are going head-to-head in kayaking.

Henry and Rhiannon will be competing against each other on a kayak course at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham.
