Lingfield achieves success at ISA Regional Athletics Competition

On Tuesday 5th June 2018, 35 children from years 4, 5 and 6 travelled to the Norman Park Athletics Stadium in Bromley to compete against 20 other schools in the ISA London South Regional competition.  The event began with an opening ceremony and all children paraded around the track with their school banners. 

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

The eventual winner of each final goes 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 possibility of up to 42 children competing in the track heats, it is no mean feat to achieve this qualification.  The silver medallists are also first reserves, if for any reason a National qualifier is unable to compete on the day. 

After a long, but successful day, 9 Lingfield pupils are now set to compete in the National event on Tuesday 19th June 2018 at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. This is hugely exciting for our young athletes to compete at the same venue as the top athletes from around the world.
