We had a cooler day for our Mini Youth Games Athletics than it has been recently which was a great relief to everyone. Four boys and four girls went with me to Medway Park to compete in the final min youth games event of the year.
In line with the World Championships coming up we were all given country names and we were chosen as Cuba. Flags painted on our faces the first event was the min marathon, both Molly and Kieran achieved top 10 positions in this one. After that the morning was taken up with the field events, each child did a throw and a jump and well done to everyone consistently achieving high positions in these events, especially Kieran and Amy in the hammer and Molly in the javelin.
After lunch was all the running heats including the one relay that happened before the weather broke. As a team Lily and James W's combined scores got us 2nd in the 60m and we finished 11th in the 4 x 100m. Valuable contributions to our final place were made by Hannah, James E and Kyle in all of their events too.
All of you contributed to us coming 8th out of 53 schools which is a magnificent result.
