The 5th Sports Day at Wellington College International Tianjin

With temperatures climbing into the high 30 degrees at times on both Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th May, conditions were very pleasant for spectators but not necessarily ideal for the competitors in the schools’ the 5th Sports Day. Considering the tough conditions especially for the long distances is like 800m and 1500m, the performances on the days were very impressive indeed, and a number of school records were broken; a total of 34 records in the Junior and 21 in the Senior.

The atmosphere of cheerful enthusiasm and general ethos of pitching for the team made for an extremely enjoyable event.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all participations for contributing to what was such an enjoyable and successful occasion, with all competitors showing great spirit of friendly rivalry and real athletic prowess. Thanks too to the PE Department and in particular Lauren and Adi for making the events run so smoothly.

Congratulations and well done to Anglesey the junior house winners and Orange the Senior House winners.
