Shaw Gibbs at the Olympics - kind of

29 Jul 2016

1 minute read

Last Thursday, a team of enthusiastic, um, ‘athletes’ from Shaw Gibbs gathered together for the Oxford Young Professionals’ Society Mini-Olympics. Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford… We were not, however, a fantastic time was had by all!

The Oxford University Athletics Track played host to events ranging from bean bag shotput, to egg and spoon race, to the big team relay finale. Dan’s apple bobbing effort was of particular note, being named the greatest feat seen at the ground since Roger Bannister’s 4 minute mile.

With the likes of Withy King, Freeths and 3PB providing tough opposition – we were pleased with our mid table finish. The medal positions were not the main goal of the event, however. The combination of entry fees and an excellent post-event raffle raised over £1,000 for local charity, Helen & Douglas House, so a big well done to all entrants for achieving this.

On a final note, the rest of my team and I would like to thank the Oxford Young Professionals Society for such a well-organised and enjoyable event. We’re already in training for a similar event next year, so sign us up!
