Loughborough International Athletics

On Sunday 21st May 2017, 20 students of both Upper Sixth and Lower Sixth volunteered at the Loughborough International Athletics Event with the prestigious title of ‘kit carrier’.   A long day of kit carrying awaited us but the optimistic comments from those who volunteered last year and the forecasted good weather set the foundations for a great event and everyone looked forward to getting started. Accompanied by an endless supply of energy drinks, a free t-shirt and the odd revision guide, we all made it through the day having carried the kit of some of Athletics’ big names, such as the Paralympic 100m champion Jonnie Peacock and Martyn Rooney. Overall it was a fantastic day enjoyed by all and I look forward to it next year.
