Springbank win Olympics!
Farsley Springbank completed a clean-sweep of athletics titles by winning the Pudsey Olympics on Wednesday. Having claimed the indoor crown earlier in the season, the athletes from Years 2-6 were put through their paces on a slightly damper than usual June afternoon at John Charles Centre for Sport. The competition involved a selection of sprint and longer distance races as well as field events including javelin, long and triple jump, target throwing and chest-push. The competition was fierce, as always, but the hard work that the children have put into training on both track and field this year shone through. This was evidenced perfectly by two exceptional relay runs by the key stage two children which demonstrated our children's determination and dedication to a T. The key stage one children demonstrated that the future of Springbank athletics continues to be bright (especially after the staff running the event had to extend their measuring tapes because our children were throwing the Javelin and chest-push too far!) As always, it was a proud day for all concerned and made prouder still by the fact that our children continue to demonstrate excellent sporting values including cheering on children from other schools in different events. It is now the third year in succession that Springbank have won both the indoor and outdoor athletics competitions.
