Bishan Stadium, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 — Nanyang Primary emerged as the school with the most bemedalled athletes after they scooped up five out of the six divisions they competed in at the 54th National Inter-Primary School Track & Field Championships.

Nanyang reaffirmed their status as the team to beat, winning both the B and D Division boys’ titles and making a clean sweep of the B, C and D Division girls’ titles. All in all, Nanyang’s athletes took home 53 medals, with 22 golds, 17 silvers, four bronzes and 10 fourth-place medals. The D Division girls’ team were winners by the biggest margin, raking in 109 points to finish ahead of Sembawang Primary, who had 52 points. The team also set four new championship records in the 60m hurdles, 300m, 600m and 4x100m relay.

Temasek Primary took the C Division boys’ title, finishing with 64 points, ahead of Nanyang who had 52. Temasek’s Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En also took home the Joe Davis Trophy, the award reserved for the best performing athlete at the championships. Reuben rewrote both the 300m and 600m record, and also helped set a new record in the 4x300m relay.

On the final day of competition, Pei Hwa Presbyterian’s Megan Ng Kai Lin won the C girls’ 600m race in a record time of 1 minute 51.12 seconds, breaking the 2009 record of 1:51.19 set by Greenwood Primary’s Nur Maisara Bte Razlee. Nanyang’s Ellis Hor and Celeste Ang came in second and third respectively with times of 1:56.24 and 1:58.21. Temasek’s Leong Hui Wen was fourth with a time of 2:1.61.

Stiff competition in the 4x100m relays also provided a treat for the crowd.

In the D girls’ race, Nanyang’s record-breaking team further lowered their record to 58.87s. Earlier on in the heats last Thursday, they had already brought the record below the one minute mark. Nanyang also won both the boys’ and girls’ B Division races while Temasek won the C and D boys’ races.

St Anthony’s Canossian won the C Girls’ relay with a time of 57.9s, ahead of Nanyang’s 58.39s and Temasek’s 59.33s.
