DSCN CandE Region Athletics Sgt Moore and Cp Leigh Pearson

 The day began a 05:00hrs, by travelling to Bury St Edmunds for the 07:45hrs coach, sleeping and snoring on the journey to Leicester Athletics Stadium. On Sunday 10th June 2012 Sergeant Jack Moore and Corporal Sophie Leigh-Pearson were travelling to the Regional Inter Wing Athletics Championships by representing Norfolk & Suffolk Wing.

“Our events did not start until the middle of the day, so we were giving our wing the best support and the loudest cheers. As I had injured my hand playing football I did not think I would do that well… However, I came 2nd in the Discus out of six competitors gaining the ‘Silver’ Medal”.


(Sgt Moore)

“My race, the 200m, did not start until after lunch, so I was getting more and more nervous about it. Race time arrived and I came 2nd gaining the ‘Silver’ Medal. My relay race was one of the last races, and we were coming last out of six until the third leg where we moved up to first position and won the ‘Gold’ Medal….”


(Cpl Leigh-Pearson).

Overall, Norfolk and Suffolk Wing came 3rd in the Central & Eastern Region and as a Wing we won 46 medals and the ‘Class E Girls’ (16yrs+) won their class.


Both of us will be attending the Corps competition on the 29th/30th June – Wish us Luck….
