On Wednesday 10th of May 2017 I went to the athletics event at Hugh Sexey middle school with Robert, Lucy, Ava, Charlie and Cayden. Mrs. Kail-Dyke and Mr. Bishop made sure that we were where we were supposed to be at the right time! The first event was the one hundred metre sprint, everybody participated apart from the teachers. The second event was the two hundred metre sprint which Charlie, Cayden, Lucy and Robert took part in. The next event was the eight hundred metre (definitely not) sprint, I was the only one from Lympsham who took part. Then we had two relay races and everybody took part, in at least one of them. The final track event was the 50 meter hurdles. Then we were split up into groups. In each group we did a different throwing or jumping activity. Finally it was tug of war (aka the injury machine) we won against Weare but got smashed (literally) by another team with eight people.
