Yap Wei Ling set off with a good start by coming in 1st position in the 100m C division in the Girl’s Category, competitors were athletes from Awwa, Chaoyang, Grace Orchard and Pathlight school.
The boy athletse did not disappoint us with Yap Wai Bing, Nur Hakim and Daryl Wee coming in 1st, 2nd and 4th position respectively in the shot put for the A division Boys Category. For the 100m for the A division Boys Category, Daryl Wee and Eddie Tang sprint all their way to come in 1st and 3rd position .
Tan Chun Boon and Eddie Tang also kept the school flag flying high by capturing 2nd and 4th position in the A division Boys Category in the long jump.
The dream for our athletes to capture additional medals in the 4x100m and the 1500m race were diminished in the afternoon due to a heavy downpour. The organiser decided to cancel the race in view of safety aspects as the warning light and siren for the lightning were alerted in the stadium.
Nevertheless, they all displayed good sportsmanship, performed their best and had their confidence increased. It was indeed a good exposure and a very good opportunity for them to gain more experience as well. With more confidence & training, it is hoped they would achieve higher and improve further in the upcoming championship meet in 2014.
