In a change from the traditional 3-way fixture, this year’s event was used as a trial involving only our own BIS athletes. This provided the perfect opportunity for athletes and coaches to gauge fitness levels and the potential of our Track and Field Athletics squads for the coming year. Most took full advantage of the event to produce some great collective and individual performances, for this stage of the season. My personal highlight was the U15 Boys 100m Final, which produced an outstanding race.
Girls and Boys teams from the British International School Jakarta (BIS), Jakarta International School (JIS) Sekola Pelita Harapan (SPH) and Global Jaya International School (GJIS), four Jakarta-based International schools all members of the Jakarta Area Athletics Conference (JAAC), faced off in a warm-up volleyball challenge.
