Congratulations to all our athletes who were victorious at the Foundation Schools’ Sports Day on Friday 6 May, winning the Millennium Cup for the twelfth year in a row! This year’s Foundation Schools’ Sports Day took place at Battersea Park, London and the schools that competed included Westminster City School, Grey Coat Hospital, Emanuel School, Sutton Valence School and Queen Anne’s.
Two competition records were broken by Zara Obamakinwa in the U13 Shot Put category with a throw of 8m70cm and Georgie Kent with a U15 100m time of 12.68s.
