24.Apr.12 Mini Bees swarm around Olympic Legend
On April 21st The Bees Academy held a special event for the Academy’s Mini Bees, aged between 5 – 8 years old, at the Norman Park Athletics Track, Hayes Lane, Bromley to mark the "100 Days To Go" until the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games. The normal Saturday morning athletics session was enhanced by the use of non-pressurised competitive events, such as standing long jump, mini howler throwing, hurdles, obstacle and shuttle relay races - held on the home straight so the parents could give voice to their support for the youngsters.
All 42 children who participated in the event were presented with a special commemorative medal donated by Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC. “We were very fortunate to have 3-time Olympian Steve Backley on hand to present the medals ably assisted by his two young daughters who had come along to watch.” said John Blackie
