Around 120 young people took to the stadium for the BCI National Youth Athletics Championships.

The competition on Friday saw athletes between 13 to 18 years, jump, run and throw in the various track and field events.

The weather also played ball allowing for the event to run smoothly and was supported by a good number of volunteers.

The next school event, CITC Prince of Wales Primary School Athletics Championships will be held on September 13 and 14.

The event will have around 300 athletes competing.

President of Athletics Cook Islands, Simone Fe’ao, asked for more volunteers to man the event.
