After observing four separate weather reports throughout the week building up to the 19th, over 700 children from 151 schools around the country impressively competed in the ISA National Athletics Finals on Wednesday (19th June) at Alexander Stadium in beautiful conditions. Children from age 9 – 16 put on a real show of outstanding athletic ability, exemplary attitude, and sportsmanship that was well placed within an international sports arena that in the past has been graced by the likes Mo Farah and Jess Ennis.
The 2019 championships were officially opened by Hannah L from Midlands (St Edwards), she paraded the 1948 Olympic Torch and Steve Backley’s 1992 British Record-breaking javelin after her monumental record-breaking 41.66m throw at the ISA championships in 2018.
