Friday March 23rd saw Wymondham Leisure Cente host the Level 2 South Norfolk School Games Aquathlon (Swim and Run) competition. The competition saw a change of format from previous years to the new ‘RELAY’ format which is currently used in the International Junior Olympics with a similar event being introduced into the 2016 Olympics.
Each High School had the opportunity to enter a year 7 & 8 (U13) team of 2 girls and 2 boys and a year 9 & 10 (U15) team of 2 girls and 2 boys. Five schools entered from the partnership Framingham Earl, Diss, Long Stratton Wymondham College and Wymondham High and it really was a competitive, tough and exciting morning.
Simon Edwards and his team from tri-a-sport who are experts at running similiar events set up the competition and course and hosted a well organised competition - please see below final results:
