Athletics is always an important start to the sporting year as it establishes a fitness and skills platform for other sports codes. Athletics is also an important sport (or group of sports) in its own right, and perhaps the purest and fairest of all sport. This being the year of Rio Olympics perhaps heightens the awareness and interest in athletics.
At Kitsong, Inter-House athletics is on Wednesday 3 February. Please come along and watch. Spectators always make a big difference to athletes. Every morning, Kitsong children can be seen practising on the athletics field for the Inter-House Meeting.
