ISA Regional Athletics

On Tuesday 4th June 2019, we took 35 children from years 4, 5 and 6 to the Norman Park Athletics Stadium in Bromley to compete in the ISA London South Regional competition against 20 other schools. The event began with an opening ceremony and all children paraded around the track with their school banners. 

After the procession the competition soon got underway and it was not long before Lingfield achieved success in both the track and field events.

The eventual winners of each final go forward to represent the London South Region at the National Championships in Birmingham. Only the first placed competitor can qualify from all events, with the exception of the 600m race where gold and silver medallists both qualify. With the possibility of up to 42 children competing in the track heats, it is quite difficult to achieve this National qualification. The silver medallists are also first reserves, if for any reason a gold medallist is unable to compete on the day. 

The weather was not particularly kind to all competitors, however, we had some great performances across the day. The presentation of medals drew the meeting to a close and Lingfield athletes achieved a great haul of 17 medals across all events. Six Lingfield College pupils will now go forward to compete in the National event on Wednesday 19th June 2019 at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. This is hugely exciting opportunity for our young athletes to compete at the same venue as the top athletes from around the world.
