Meanwhile Tuesday 11th August saw Alexandra Park Sports Hub’s first athletic competition with a Club Quadathlon for the club’s Under 11 and Under 13 groups with 26 athletes taking part. All the athletes had to do a 60m Shuttle Run, Standing Triple Jump, Throw Target event and finally round off with a 1000m run around the bowling greens.

While this was about each young athlete putting down personal bests for these events it was great to see some great competition over the 4 events. The Under 13 Boys saw Daniel and Mark head to head through out the events with Daniel pulling ahead by 2 pts due to some excellent throwing. Harry was 3rd. Estelle got the better of Sophie this time with Lydia 3rd followed by Kate, Emily T and Macy.

The Under 11 event saw Zoe 1st with Stella 2nd and Eva 3rd followed by Louise, Grace, Emily F, Lucy M, Lucy L, Gabrielle and Charlotte. Murray in the boys event was 1st, with Naod 2nd and Andrew 3rd with Alfie, Jack, Sam and John filling up the next places.

Again well done to everyone and thank you to John O, Matthew, Carson, Kyle, Alexia and Tammy for helping out in the running of the events
