North Isles Sports 2019

North Isles Sports 2019 was held on 15 th June 2019 in Westray. It was the 70 th anniversary as North Isles Sports started in 1948 although they skipped a year out somewhere in between. The islands that compete are Stronsay, Papay, Sanday, Westray and sometimes North Ronaldsay and Eday.
The events were 100m sprint, 200m sprint, 400m sprint, 1500m, high jump, long jump, shot putt, football, netball and the fun primary events that were held were 75m sprint, shot putt and standing long jump. The age groups were primary, school girls, school boys, ladies, mens and veteran. I don’t
know ALL of the results but here’s the primary events: for the standing long jump P4/5 boys, Jamie Holland came 1 st with a fab jump of 1m 65cm!!!!!! For the P4/5 girls Martha Bremner competed even though she is only in P3!!!!! She came 3 rd place with an awesome jump of 1m 22cm!!! In the
