Belvedere College had an excellent day at the Leinster Schools Multi-Events. We had eight athletes invited to compete over Inter, Junior and Minor age groups against highly specialized and seasoned club athletes from all around the province. This competition is a test of stamina, speed, skill and mental endurance in five very different athletics events (Hurdles, 200 metres, Long Jump, Shot Putt and 800 metres). It is particularly suited to students whose main or only sport is Athletics. The objective of the exercise was to give the students an opportunity to compete against the all round best athletes in the province with the possible chance of top ten finishes. We are delighted to report that we had five top six finishes in the three age groups which would make us the most consistent overall boys school in the province (although there are no overall trophies!)Multi sport
