On Tuesday 19 June our regional ISA Athletics winners Lucinda (Year 6) and Henrik (Year 3) travelled to the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham for the ISA National athletics finals. The stadium will host the athletics for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. It was such a privilege for our athletes to compete in this illustrious setting and the atmosphere was superb. Lucinda and Henrik represented London West and competed against other regions such as the Midlands, East Anglia, the North of England, South West England, London North and London South so just to qualify for this elite event is quite an accolade in itself. They both ran very well in their 60m and 80m sprints. Henrik took the silver medal with a time of 9.2 seconds and Lucinda took the bronze medal with a time of 12.1 seconds. This was an incredible achievement and so richly deserved after many months of hard work in training with Mr Will, our head of sport, and Coach Steve. PGP wants to say a huge ‘well done!’ and wishes them every success in their future within athletics and beyond.
