Primary Schools’ stars shine at sun-kissed City Championships!

Despite temperatures at trackside approaching 90 degrees fahrenheit, athletes from Liverpool’s primary schools put on a show to remember at the annual City Championships held at the Wavertree Athletics Centre.

The sun wasn’t the only the thing shining as Years 5&6 pupils took to the track and field to wow and entertain a huge crowd with some top performances and numerous personal bests achieved

King David’s Charlie Teare said he was “very happy” to win the Year 6 800m final after an unforgettable battle on the track with Corinthian’s Daniel Brown which was one of the highlights of the event.

Top performers on the day included Lister School’s Paige Cannon-James who took home three golds to make it five successive years as a City Champion, and Patrick Gamble from St Pauls who was also a triple winner.

An unforgettable day drew to a close with some nail-biting finishes in the relay races with St Pauls and Lister School both impressing but each and every child had given their all in one of the best City Championships in years.
