U13 FOBISIA Games Hong Kong Day 2

17 March 2016

Day 2 of the games brought a haul of medals, here is how it happened! 

This morning started with a 6am get up which lead to a 6:45am breakfast. The buses left at 7:15 to head to the school to start the first day of competition. We arrived at Kellet at 7:20 to begin our first sport, swimming. Warm-ups started at 7:30 and the events started at 8:00. Almost the whole squad took part in swimming and the rest of us sat in the crowd cheering each other on. The team secured a total of 14 placing’s with every member of the swim squad receiving a medal.

Special mentions:

Girls: Ela Walsh. She had stepped in with a moment’s notice to fill a spot in the girls 200m relay team. She swam the last length securing a bronze metal that looked doubtful moments before.

Boys: Boys B team relay (Hau Wen Chang, Duc Trong Phan, Raafay Qamar, Jack Lee). This team has never swum together and they together secured a bronze medal (with their unorthodox starts)

MVPs for swimming:

Emily Marshal: She won 3 medals. She won gold in the 100m breaststroke, a gold in the 50m breaststroke and she also won silver in 200m freestyle relay.

Dylan Bonner-Highman: Dylan won a silver medal in the 50m backstroke. A silver medal in the 100m backstroke and a bronze in the 200m freestyle relay.

After lunch, came athletics.

We headed to the stadium and started warming up for our last sport of the day. BIS won a total of 35 medals; 15 gold, 11 silver and 9 bronze. In the boys shot putt BIS won 2 gold medals with Shion Nix and Justin Chu. Hayley Handscombe and Anna Kinder were both victorious in discus and won gold medals. The gold rush continued with double gold in boys javelin, Kenny Nguyen and Truong Son. The girls were not to be beaten by winning 2 gold medals in the high jump, Anna Kinder and Maika Pedersen setting a new school record of 1.40m. Athletics finished with relays. BIS won another 2 gold medals in the 4 x 100m relay.

Special mentions:

Girls: Ela Walsh. Once again Ela came to the teams rescue; Gemma Handscombe had a tight calf and was unable to run. Ela leap from the stands and bounded into the 800m. Although she didn’t get a  medal this time she ran not just for herself but for the team.

Boys: Jack Lee now officially known as a relay specialist. He won two bronze medals in the pool both in relays and had to wait until the last event in athletics but it proved to be a worthwhile wait. The boys relay team with Jack at second leg stormed home to victory winning GOLD!

MVPs for athletics

Maika Pedersen: Maika was outstanding on track and field today. Winning a total of 3 medals; silver in 200m, gold in the 4x100m, gold and a new school record in the high jump.

Shion Nix: Shion competed in five events and with great skill and amazing determination managed to win a medal in every event; bronze in the 4x100m relay, silver in 1500m, silver in 400m, silver in high jump and a gold medal in the shot putt.
