We left school for the Sportshall Athletics Competition in the school mini bus. In the mini bus sat Billy, Jake, Bobby, Renars, Rhys, Antonel, Kobi, Montana, Patricija, Caitlin, Madison, Lottie, Lily, Hanar, Neveah and Alana. When we arrived at Westbourne Sports Hall we found there were 7 other schools we would be competing against.
The first thing we did was practise each of the events. We were team one in round one which meant that we ran in lane one of the first race of each event. The first race was the obstacle race where we had to step in each space along a long mat, do 10 speed bounces, jump over 4 big hurdles and then run back to our team. The other races were the 1 lap relay, 2 lap relay, 6 lap paarlauf, over and under relay and the 4 lap relay. We won some races but lost some points on some races.
Finally it was the field events which were the chest push, standing long jump, standing triple jump, verticle jump, soft javelin and speed bounce. Each team member competed in two field events. My field events were the standing triple jump and the javelin throw. Everyone did amazing at their events!
At the end of the competition the scores were read out. We didn't finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd but the best part of it all was taking part and having fun!
