Abercorn Athletes at the Schools Relays
After impressing some club coaches at the ISA Regional Athletics championships, Abercorn Athletics Club received a special invitation to participate in the Highgate Harriers Schools Relays, which doubled up as the Team GB trials in the 10km for the World Athletics, which will be held in London later this year. On Saturday, 20 May 2017, a team of 10 children, 5 girls and 5 boys from Year 4 and 5, showed up to Parliament Hill Athletics track to represent Abercorn School in this event. The children had to run 200m reps to cover 5000m in total.
The team included: Shareef, Chloe, Sofia, Phoenix, Sophia, Sean Batu, Barnaby, Mila, Leonardo, Mateo
They finished the 5k in a time of 16 minutes and 32 seconds.
Well done for a great effort. We look forward to participating in this event again next year.
Thank you to the parents who supported the event, and to Mr Conroy for organising our team to go to this great event.
