Every single cadet that took part in an athletics event tried their hardest, There were 4 cadets that were awarded medals for coming first (gold), second (silver), and third (bronze). These cadets were;

Cpl Rodger earned a Bronze medal in the girls 200m sprint.

Cdt Truman earned his silver medal in the boys 200m sprint.

Cdt Adams received a gold medal in the 400m race.

Cdt Harding threw himself into the bronze position as he came third in the Javelin event.

Some cadets came 4th in their respective events, just missing out on medals too.

The day was very exciting for all the cadets who attended. The atmosphere was great. We were all cheering each other on in the events, and we were extatic when our cadets received medals for their achievements.

"My favourite event was the 4X100m relay, we came second in our heat, and 4th in the final, just missing out on a bronze medal." Cpl Mckeown
