B&D Sportshall Athletics Competition

The Valence Barking and Dagenham Sportshall Athletics team.

On Monday 4th February our Year 5 and 6 athletics went to Sydney Russell school to take part in the 2019 Barking and Dagenham Sportshall Athletics Competition. 

The Valence team consisted of nine boys and nine girls. Our brave athletics took park in 6 track events (1+1 lay relay, 2+2 lap relay, obstacle relay, 6 lap paarlauf, over/under relay and the 4x1 relay) and 6 field events (vertical jump, standing triple jump, standing long jump, chest push, javelin and the speed bounce) amongst the competitive 220 athletes present from 11 other borough schools. 

After the great success of the cross country championships in October, Valence worked hard in preparation for this indoor athletics competitions. All our athletics and coaches jumped with delight with the announcement of coming runners-up at this competition for our first ever time. The aim will be even higher come 2020, as we aim for gold and the London regional finals. 

Congratulations to all involved!
