Triumphant Robert !

Well! Robert has just returned home, the Victor!

He took part in the Small Schools Athletics Competition in Tooting today, competing against 9 other schools from the Borough of Wandsworth.

He won a Bronze medal in the Long Jump. He then went on to win his heat (1 of 20) for the 100m and clocked the fastest time in all the heats before winning the Final and picking up his first ever Gold medal.

Then he took part in a 2 x 100m/200m relay - the first person runs 100m and the second (Robert) runs 200m. Again, he picked up a Gold medal.

Finally, he ran the third leg in the 4 x 100m relay and the team came home to a victorious Gold - the third of the day for Robert!.

Not only did he win 3 Gold and 1 Bronze, but he was also talent-spotted and asked (with two others from his school) to run for Wandsworth Borough in the London Small Schools Athletics Competition (date to be confirmed).

When talking to Bob on the phone just now, he described himself as a "Mini Amelia" - maybe this is a glimpse of things to come! Watch this space ...
