Revelstoke Elementary school children showed they had the “right stuff” to compete physically during track and field meets at Columbia Park Elementary and Centennial Park on June 3 and June 10.
The kids appeared to have a good time and certainly parents enjoyed seeing them compete. Despite that, the events lacked the verve and excitement that characterized the District Track & Field School Meets of yore. We do well enough celebrating our young children’s academic skills but very little to showcase their physical strivings. Perhaps it’s time we resurrected a full-blown District Track & Field Meet.
Here are a few photos of the June 9 800-metre races as well as PDFs of the results for 10-, 11-, 12- and 13-year-olds:
