Special Event - Athletics at Alexander Stadium

10 July 2011

On 10th July 2011, a group of teachers, parents and children were lucky enough to go to the Alexander Stadium to watch the prestigious Grand Prix athletics.

We watched some top quality action including a 5000m win by London 2012 Gold medal hopeful, Mo Farah, a triple jump victory by Phillips Idowu and an impressive 100m race that was won in 9.90 seconds by Asafa Powell.

As well as watching some great action, the children got to meet some of the athletes and also had the unique opportunity of running a lap of honour at the end of the day.

The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we are now looking forward to going back on 31st July to watch the UK athletics trials.
