Congratulations to Year 5 girls Jasmine and Victorious, who have been selected for Buckinghamshire county’s athletics squad.
The girls did themselves – and their school – proud last weekend while participating in Buckinghamshire County Athletic Trials. Both girls are long-standing members of Marshall Milton Keynes Athletic Club and were chosen by the club to attend the event.
Jasmine received two medals, one for attending and the other for ‘speed bounce’ – jumping over obstacles as fast as possible. Victorious also received a medal for attendance, plus a second for being the fastest U11 female hurdler.
Thornton Director of Sports Miss Hickman says: ‘As a department, we spotted Jasmine was a talented athlete from a very young age, she is lightning quick! She has now been training with the athletics club for a good number of years. Victorious was new to Thornton in September and has proved herself to be a real talent across a range of sports. We look forward to the athletics season so these two stars can shine for Thornton!’
