Paddock Wood STARTRACK 2014
The 23rd Startrack Athletics Week was held from Monday 4th – Friday 8th August and organised by Paddock Wood Athletic Club
139 children took part in the 23rd Startrack week organised by Paddock Wood AC. With the weather on their side, the children tried their hands at various athletic events from High Jump, Long and Triple Jump, Javelin, Hammer and Shot Putt and all distances in running. At the end of the week the children were divided into teams, this year named after lesser known Pacific and Indonesian island which are part of the Commonwealth. Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga and Samoa.
Each child did a run, a jump and a throw from which they scored points. These results were added together for a team total, the winning team this year was Vanuatu and they were all presented with gold medals. Trophies were also awarded for the boy and girl winners in the various age groups. In the 6/7 years group Joseph Hyland and Izzy Rayner were the winners.
Tom Creasy and Holly Tapp took the 89 year old prizes. Freddy Gache and Ella Root claimed the 1011 year group and Tristan Stocker and Asha Root won the 12 years and over. All participants took home a goody bag.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved in another successful week.
