2018 – so far!
3 Weeks to go until SuperheroTri 2018, and things are hotting up. Training with Mum & Dad is well underway, & Oscar is getting fitter and better each week too. For today though, let me give you a quick update on whats been happening over the last 7 months.
16th of January, and only having been back to school a few weeks after Christmas, I had the opportunity to return to Olympic Park, London, but this time, it was the Aquatics Centre!
A group of us from Kingfisher got the chance to compete in a swimming competition, in the Panathlon County Finals – Oxfordshire & Herts. We done really well, and the competition was strong.
We didn’t win, but still came away with a medal each, and it was a fantastic experience.
Mum, Dad and Oscar also came along to cheer us all on too.
It was Panathlon time again – but this time it’s back nearer to home. 7th of February, and we made a short trip round the corner from my school, to the White Horse Leisure Centre for the Oxfordshire Multi-sport competition. An indoor competition featuring Curling, boccia, Polybat, table cricket and some field events.
We came third overall, but it was another great day.
Guess what……………..Panathlon Competion number 3 of 2018!!
March 15th, and we made the trip across the county to the home of Para sport- Stoke Mandeville stadium. This time it was Oxon, Berks & Wilts Multi-sport regional Finals. A big group of us, sporting our new lucky colour – Green
This was going to be a special day for us. Another competition featuring more Polybat, Boccia, table cricket, and field events. It was a tense day, with everyone doing really well. The final scores really came down to the wire, with Kingfisher narrowly winning first place on countback, as the scores were level 50 each.
It was really exciting for all of us when they announced we had won. Another GOLD to add to my collection of Panathlon medals. As an added treat, we even got to hold one of the olympic torches that was lit at Stoke Mandeville stadium ahead of the 2018 Pyeongchang winter Olympics.
