The Year 4/5 Quad Kids Athletic City Finals took place today, Monday 16th July, 10am-12pm at Harvey Hadden Stadium.
This Championship event had previously been postponed due to bad weather conditions but thankfully the morning stayed relatively dry, just long enough to complete the final event.
The tournament saw 7 Primary schools compete in the 5 events- 50m Sprint, 400m Run, Howler Throw, Standing Long Jump and Team Relay. All of the competing Primary schools qualified through to this event in heats which ran back in May.
The competition was extremely close with only 12 points between the winning team and the final 7th place.
Old Basford had some extremely long throws from their boyís competitors- 27.7m, whilst South Wilford boys clocked in some quick running times. Middleton girls saw the longest standing long jump score with a great jump of 1.93m.
The final positions were as follows:
1 Old Basford
2 Robin Hood
2 South Wilford
7 St Margaretís
It was a fantastic event to end our City Competition Calendar 2011/12
