On Tuesday 26 June Primary athletes from across the South competed in the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Year 5/6 Athletics Championships, this year being held at Southampton Sports Centre.
Twelve children were chosen from each of the ten competing cities/areas.
Oakwood is proud to say that one of our year five girls was chosen to compete for Southampton!
She competed in the:
- 1KG Chest push
- Long jump
There were five heats for the girls 150m with the times from these used to decide the winners. Oakwood's representative won her heat in a time of 25.2 seconds! Unfortunately, there were quicker times in the other heats, the winning athlete clocking an impressive 22.5seconds!
Southampton did very well during the day and finished the day in third place, bringing home the team bronze! Well done Southampton!
