New events in 2011 National Inter-Schools Championship
  • August 10th, 2010

Singapore School Sports Council (SSSC) has added seven new events for next year’s annual Inter-Schools competition.

Expect to see the hammer throw, steeplechase, walks and pole vault as part of the National Schools sporting calendar schedule.

This is excellent news as this could only mean progress within our school scene, as with such awareness, there will be a more specific focus, and generate the needed support for the less ‘popular’ events that has been neglected for so long.

Long-term wise, of course this would translate to a bigger pool of talent as these juniors transition into senior athletes in the coming future.

This is just what we needed to kick-start our initiative to revive, and bringing back the glory days of local athletics.

The following events will be added to the SSSC National Inter-Schools Track & Field Championships:-

  1. Open Boys Hammer
  2. A Boys 5km Walk
  3. A Girls’ 2000m Steeplechase
  4. B Girls’ 2000m Steeplechase
  5. A Girls 3km Walk.
  6. Open Girls Hammer
  7. Open Girls Pole Vault

For Open category, schools are limited to 3 entries regardless of A, B or C division. Points won still contribute to their respective division the top 8 finishers belong.
