Something different and great fun for Leehurst Swan athletes won them gold, silver and two fourth places.
Athletes from Years 5 to 8 travelled to Dauntsey’s to compete in the Laser Run, organised by Wiltshire and Swindon School Games. Laser run is a precursor to the pentathlon and involves hitting a target with a laser gun five times, a 300m run, another five targets with the laser gun and a final 300m run.
Leehurst Swan’s two Year 5/6 mixed teams took Gold and Silver medals. The Year 7/8 girls’ and Y7/8 boys’ teams competed well but were both pushed into fourth place.
They were inspired to meet and talk with Montell Douglas, a former 100m British record holder who has her sights set on a bobsleigh medal at the Winter Olympics.
