Youngsters from around Auckland put their athletic abilities to the test at the Special Olympics Secondary Schools Athletics Ribbon Day held at Mt Smart Stadium last week. The event saw about 200 students take part in 100-metre and 200m races, shot put, softball throw and long jump. Organiser Mel Giles says it s great for the kids to get out there and perform. For me it s just fantastic to see them receiving their ribbons. They have a competitive side. It s provid- ing them with an opportunity to compete in sport. Last year there were about 400 children at the event, with central and west Auckland schools attending. But Ms Giles says its popularity has exploded so central and western schools now need separate events. Representing their school also feeds into club athletics, along with regional and even world compe- titions for the athletes. Thirty volunteers from ANZ Bank helped out on the day, giving out ribbons and running various events. ANZ volunteer Amanda Grace says it was fantastic to be involved. It s so much fun -- their spirits were so high and you learn a lot from the kids as well. Go to www. centralleader. co.nz to see a photo gallery of the event.
