If I understand the website correctly, Baradene College was 2nd in the junior girls long, on Monday. They were in the category for all team members from the same school, there's another category for any school, same country. Mt Albert Grammar, Napier Boys and Napier Girls also ran well. I think there's a middle distance coming up.

Baradene Bronze in Junior Girls' School

New Zealand won the Joy of Moving Award for Fair Play, Conduct and Joyful Spirit. This was at least in part because two of our athletes (amos Plumpton and Adam Bateman) helped an English competitor who had a potentially serious head and neck injury.

The award for a fair play means more than achieving a 1st place. I'm really moved by the attitude and sportsmanship of our athletes. Do you have any information what happened to the injured Englishman? Is he ok?

The injured girl was released from hospital that night and kept under observation by the coaches. They flew home the next day.
It was noticed that at the prizegiving that night, the English team gave a standing ovation when the fair play award was announced. One of the English coaches search out Amos and Adam individually before the prizegiving, thanking them and giving an update on her.

And the Joy of Helping Others and the Future of the Sport before Thinking of your Own Glory Award goes to... those who accompanied the teams instead of running in the masters. Thanks:-))
