International Schools Athletics Championship

With the International Schools Athletics Championship taking place at the end of February (close to the Junior School Play and Mock Exams), we are never able to send a large squad. The small team we sent this year, however, performed exceedingly well. Natasha Bakelmun finished 5th in both the 100m and 200m, and Manuukith Sivaram 5th in 200m and 4th in 100m, narrowly missing out on a medal in the blue riband event of the meet. Yumna Hussein, Ramudi Samarasekera and Takaharu Higuchi also reached the final in their events. Athletics Captain Urshella Hisham was the star performer overall, though, winning Bronze Medals in all three of her events – 200m, 400m and hurdles. Our Under 19 Boys brought the meet to a successful close by finishing 4th in both the 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relays. Given that they were competing against the top athletes out of the 40,000 students who attend TISSL schools, our athletes can be very proud of their impressive results.
