Loughborough Primary School's Athletics
2018 Town Sports
As you will probably agree, there are not many better settings for aspiring athletes to compete at, than that of Loughborough University's Track. The children had the privilege of displaying their talents at the same venue as may household names; Lord Sebastian Coe, Steve Backley and Paula Radcliffe to name but a few.
Our athletes have been training for this event during their PE lessons. Out of the 30 pupils who took part in this event, only one is a member of an athletic club. They were all amazing and we had a medal in all events; not all year groups! The pupils that ran the 400m and 800m were phenomenal, we had silver medalist in this event.
It was a fantastic afternoon and everyone who took part did Newcroft proud. A massive well done to all.
And a huge thank you to Mrs Gamble (from Mr Smythe) who puts so much time aside to help give the children these opportunities.
