Pearl River Conference Athletics Meet

Saturday 6th May saw the very first external competition for DHZH Sharks Athletics squad, and indeed the first Athletics competition organized within the Pearl River Conference Schools. 16 Year 10 athletes accompanied by Dr Sumner and Mr Sweeney travelled to the hosts, Huawei International School in Guangzhou early in the morning for the competition. Utahloy International School Guangzhou and British International School Guangzhou superbly organized the day.



There was a full complement of Track and Field competitions, and the athletes competing from 6 different schools provided some very stiff opposition. There were some excellent results for The Sharks, with nearly every student coming away with a medal.



The sharks went on to win 18 Medals with some outstanding performances. Arguably the performance of the day was Albert, who was competing in a Pentathlon. A Pentathlon requires each entrant to complete five events which must include a minimum of:

One sprint from

100m, 200m or 400m

One middle distance run from

800m, 1500m or 3000m

One jump from

Triple jump, Long jump, or High Jump

One throw from

Javelin, Discus or Shot Put

One other event from those listed above

Albert not only won gold in the pentathlon, he also won gold while running his 3000m as well as a bronze in the triple jump. Howard won two Silver medals (discus and javelin) and a gold medal in the Shot Put. Our ladies put in some spirited performances on the track, with Kim winning Silver in the 400m, and our relay team claiming a bronze medal. The boys relay team comfortably won the 4x100m race.
