Year 8 Boys Athletics Team reach final
We are proud to announce that the Year 8 Boys Athletics team made it through to the London Finals (taking place Crystal Palace National Sports Centre) after a dominating display of physical prowess and mental toughness.
Competing against 7 other London based schools who had all excelled in their respective boroughs, and in a multitude of events including an obstacle course, sprint, middle and endurance based circuits, long/triple jump and shot, the boys showed fantastic levels of grit, determination and teamwork throughout.
Lemuel (shot), Yasin (6 lap circuit), Ali (4 lap circuit), Sahr (4 lap circuit) and Sahr (triple jump) all won their respective events and in the final 4 man relay (consisting of Ali, Lemuel, Johnai and Devonte) we sealed first place position overall with a comfortable victory against our opponents due to our scintillating pace and power.
The boys' positive, polite and hard-working attitude made them a pleasure throughout the day and they were naturally delighted to find out that they had qualified as overall winners of the competition.
It's now onward to Crystal Palace!!
Congratulations to the following boys: Yasin, Johnai, Stephen, Ali, Sahr, Devonte and Lemuel.
