Summary by Norman Lo (78)

This is a summary of this year's Interschool Athletics Championship.  After 2 days of intensive competition (day1 and 2), we were 8 points behind our archrival LSC in the overall.  As I had mentioned in my previous e-mail, both school had the chance to win the coveted Overall trophy.

Day 3 was warm and humid, and it was much better than the weather at day 2 which was freezingly cold.  We performed superbly in the morning gaining as manly points as we can in A 400 hurdles, triple jump, B high jump, 200, 800 and hurdles, not to let LSC widen the lead.  After the morning events, we found out that we were only 2 points behind in the quest for the overall champ!  At the afternoon events (100, 400 and 1500), our athletes also performed brilliantly and began to take the lead in the overall before the relays.

Then an expected accident happened to the LSC B 4 x100 relay, they dropped the baton during the exchange between their 1st and 2nd leg; although they could still completed the changover within the takeover zone, they could only finished the race a distant 8th.  Last year, LSC had their C 4 x 100 relay team dq for stepping into the neighbouring lane during 3rd and 4th leg change over.  It is curious as in the past DBS 4 x 100, relay teams were notorious for dropping relay batons and exchanging outside the takeover zone, and LSC relay teams never committed such mistakes.

With our relay teams doing their utmost best, they came first in the C and B 4 x100, C and B 4 x 400 and second in the A 4 x 100 and 4 x 400, we made a huge come back and won the overall champ by a handsome 44 pts for the seventh consecutive year.  Results as follows:
