On Saturday 27 February BIS travelled to the Thu Duc Sports University for the annual SISAC Athletics City Championships and to defend their title.
On an unusually hot day in Saigon, the temperature seemed to stoke the fire in the BIS students bellies and it inspired them to produce some outstanding individual performances. The BIS students managed to place in the top 3 in nearly all of the track and field events. This proved to be vital in the overall standings, with BIS cruising to victory in each of the age categories to be retain the title and be crowned Champions of HCMC.
First places were a plenty for BIS students, with the following receiving gold medals; U14 Girls; Anna (3), Annika (2), Hayley (2), Fieke (2) Caitlyn (2), Teaghan, Anne-Linh, Maika, Gemma, and the relay team. U14 Boys; Max Jencks (2), Junseo and Shion. For the U19 Girls; Nicola (4), Gabby (3), Jun (2), Saebom (2), Anna (2), Penny (2) Joanne and the relay team. U19 Boys; Vincent (4), Josh (3), Felix (3) Jacob, JK and the relay team.
Well done to all of those involved and making the day such a success for BIS!
