It was a scorchingly hot sunny day
(but fortunately not too oppressive) when 3 parents arrived at Yate Outdoor
Sports Complex with 7 year 6 children and 3 more from year 5 for the Quadkids
The events to be competed in were a 600 metre run, a 75 metre sprint, a standing long jump and some throwing events which all children took part in.
Some fared better in short distance, whilst others were brilliant in the long distance races. Congratulations to Harriett Taylor who took first place for girls over 600m with a time of 2:04. Tom came 4th overall in the 600m with a time of 2:01, just 1 second slower than the three joint winners on 2:00. Harriett was highly placed in all disciplines and after four events she ttook first place for girls and tied first placed for Boys & Girls with the best performing boy who finished on the same score.
The field events were more relaxed and light hearted, and again Team Trinity achieved some good results. We showed strength in depth to take Team 3rd out of the 25 teams entered.
The afternoon went really well and despite a lot of waiting around Team Trinity behaved impeccably, showing great competitive spirit but also displaying support and encouragement for everyone taking part.
Very well done to all those who represented Trinity: Tom Connors, Charlie Delargy, Louis Bombroff, Lilly Murnan, Harriett Taylor, Beth Edwards, Emily Simpson, Alex Taylor, Brandon Mullins and Charles Hall.
I must also say a massive thank you to Bec Gay for organising this event with massive support from Boo Delergy and Alex Connors. Without them, this event would not have been possible and we all appreciate the great deal of time and energy they spent on this for us all. This was too good an opportunity for Team Trinity to miss, so watch this space for very promising results to follow!
