    Agrolympics is an annual event for farming students, which sees 19 countries take part in 30 farming-themed competitive events with one team crowned overall winner.

    The UK squad - all from Easton and Otley College - took top spot in the hand milking challenge. Other events included log splitting, hay bale lifting and plumbing.

    Easton and Otley student Izaak Lark, who is based in Lowestoft and works for Somerleyton Estate, was thrilled at the win.

    "Not everyone gets an opportunity to represent their country and overall it was a great experience. British dairy is a big thing so to get first place in hand milking was satisfying. I loved every minute of this experience. This will live with me forever," he said.
