Barrow pupils jump at chance to enjoy fun activities
Last updated at 12:09, Tuesday, 27 May 2014
THE next Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis or Usain Bolt could be found in a crop of mini Barrow Olympians.
Infant schools across Barrow took part in an Inspiring Infants mini-Olympics event at the Furness Building Society Stadium yesterday.
Inspiring Barrow and the Barrow AFC Community Initiative teamed up to put on the event as a way of encouraging children to take up sport.
While spacehopper races might not strictly be an Olympic event yet, that did not bother youngsters who put their all into hopping across the finish line. More traditional events included mini hurdles and mini races.
And while the likes of Bolt and Ennis dedicate their lives to finishing first, by the looks on the faces of the knee high competitors winning came second to having a great time. The Year one pupils relished the chance to compete at the Bluebirds’ home ground.
