On Friday afternoon Bosvigo School enjoyed some real sporting success by winning the Peninsula Quad Kids Athletics Competition at Carn Brea Leisure Centre. The event involved schools from across the Falmouth, Truro and Redruth area and offered the children the chance to compete at a high level on a proper 400m athletics track.
The children each took part in four events – 75m sprint, standing long jump, 600m run and Vortex Howler throw. We performed solidly in the 600m runs and enjoyed some strong finishes in the 75m sprints, but it was in the Howler throws and the standing long jump that the team showed its talent, earning some impressive points and helping us achieve the highest score out of the many schools involved.
As a result of winning the Quad Kids at Carn Brea, our athletes now qualify for the prestigious Cornwall School Games, and annual Olympics-style event involving around 3000 children between the age of 7 and 16. Well done team!
