THE SUN shone and the athletes turned out in their droves to compete in the Thurrock Schools Track and Field Champs at Blackshots on friday.
Thurrock athletes really buck the trend: while other boroughs find it hard to muster up a team, each event in Thurrock has two athletes from each school. This led to a keen first bend in the 800 metres where twenty athletes charged for the lead.
The list of full results will be up tomorrow.
The two films below show highlights of the 800 metres and the 4 x 100 metres relay.
