Congratulations to all our Heavers Farm athletes who competed at the Croydon Primary Athletics Competition yesterday.
We had 7 athletes in the finals, which was a great improvement on last year and a terrific achievement, given that there were nearly 100 schools in the competition!
Our girls relay team ran a storming race, placing 4th in their semi-final, against some really tough competition. Terence Greene Mensah and Taylor Brown ran fantastically in their respective races, and Iqueeno Willocks ran fantastically to come third in her race, despite another child veering into her lane.
A special mention goes to Jemima Chima, who, as well as running a fantastic last leg in the relay, finished third place in the long jump! Below is a video of Jemima’s spectacular second jump, leaving the other competitors in her dust.
Well done to all of our fantastic athletes, who got a special mention from one of the organisers of the event due to their excellent technique and sportsmanship.
