Friday 31st January, 2020 saw the Zonal sports competition – athletics – at St Pauls, Musami. Earlier posts have given a little hint of what happened, but I have received more pictures and information about the day from Pakati’s perspective.
Many thanks to Mr Chizenya for the pictures and information – here is what he told me regarding the results:
4×100 metres under 17 girls relay
400 metres under 17 girls race
100 metres under 17 boys race
Under 17 girls long jump
Under 17 girls triple jump
The girls who won long jump, triple jump and 400 metres race are all part of the relay team.
Many thanks to Debbie Chadbon for this photo – really takes me back to my time at Pakati! The athlete shown in the photo is Juliana Chiroodza, the athletics star of Pakati Secondary school back when I was working there 1989 – 1991. Juliana was just a natural sportswoman. She was very good at high jump, sprinting (100m), 400m, played netball, volleyball and tried football more than once. At 100m, she went to the National finals, with the school using part of the sports funds raised from the community.
