Athletics: Seychelles Track & Field Schools invitational meet |08 March 2014
Athletes compete again in invitational meet
A number of schools from Mahé and Praslin met once again for the third time as they welcomed the Kenya International School for the annual Seychelles Track & Field Schools invitational meet at Stad Popiler yesterday.
The competition which started three years ago brings together several schools as well as the International School from Kenya in the spirit of friendship and competition which goes on for two days.
It is organised by Airtel Seychelles as well as the National Sports Council (NSC) and the Seychelles Athletics Federation. After it was first held here three years ago, it was decided that it should be made an annual event.
In his opening address, Airtel’s managing director Vikram Sinha thanked the NSC for organising this activity as well as the Minister for Sports, Vincent Meriton, for taking the time to attend this event. He also wished the competitors the very best during the two days of competition.
NSC chief executive Giovanna Rousseau said: “This competition is a good opportunity for you to prepare for the annual Inter-school Athletics Championship in June as well as to give good performances so that you can be included in the national team for the CJSOI competition in December.”
Competitors from Anse Boileau, Anse Royale, English River and Plaisance as well as the International School Kenya have once again come for the competition and for the first time those from La Digue and Praslin have joined.
