Thomas’s Clapham Athletics

25th June 2019

On Saturday 15 June the girls competed in an athletics meet at Tooting Bec Athletics Track. With a selection of athletes from Years 3 to 6. The girls performed extremely well in each of their events and we were able to come back with a great selection of medals.

We had a number of athletes make it through to the finals in their track events including A Stafford, G Staples, I Gilmore, X Radloff, E Guganeswaran and P Arnold-Roberts. Stand out performances came from X Radloff who came 1st in the Year 6 100m, I Gilmore who came 3rd in the Year 5 100m and A Stafford who came 3rd in the Year 3 100m. K Johnson who came 1st in the Year 5 400m, J Thompson who came 2nd in the Year 6 800m and P Arnold-Roberts came 3rd in the Year 5 400m. We also had huge successes in the 800m and the 1200m with M Few and J Thompson both placing 2nd, A Bednall coming in 1st and A Jenkins coming in in 3rd position in the 800m; whilst A Jenkins and I Gilmore both won their 1200m, K Johnson came in 2nd and E Horne came in 4th in the 1200m events. We definitely excelled on the track, but there was also some great performances in the field events – with some athletes taking on an event they have never completed before.

Special mention should also be given to A Stafford and E Guganeswaran who raced up a year group in the relay.

All were superb, the Year 6 girls won their age category overall and came away with a trophy. Well done to all the girls that participated – you should be really proud of your performance.
