The Athletics Open 2022 shone and not because of the blue skies and sunshine!
It could have been one of many reasons. 68 competitors, with over 52 individual events! Some competitors came from as far away as Poland and Santa Barbara, California. All determined to beat their personal best and win that elusive medal!
There is nothing like the Athletics Open! The loud starter pistol, the cheers as you run past, or the sound of running shoes hitting the track.
Martin did a great job as the compere this year! He announced the races. Encouraged the competitors and let you know who was running past, about to jump or throw.
We had 38 amazing volunteers & officials, with 16 being guide runners. New faces learned the ropes from experienced volunteers and expert officials! Sharing knowledge is priceless.
This year’s Athletics Open was golden! A fun and uplifting day. The Metro team thanks everyone who volunteered and participated. As you all helped make this event shine!
A big shoutout to Martin, Lucy, Joyce & Roy for all their hard work!
Here are some of the fantastic photos from the day from Chris Vaughan Photography
