All-time best scores in the combined events is affirmation of Singapore Sports School Track and Field’s effort in developing its student-athletes into all-rounded athletes. Track and Field student-athletes put up a strong showing at the 10th BJSS International Combined Events Championship (BJSSICE) to deliver one of the Academy’s best results since their first participation in 2011.

Singapore Sports School’s Under 13 team emerged champions in the Overall Boys and Overall Girls categories at the meet organised by Bukit Jalil Sports School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 2 to 3 November 2019.

Their win was boosted by creditable performances by Lucas and Anarqi who finished 2nd and 3rd. Two other teams – U14 and U15 Boys – also rewrote the Academy’s best scores in the Hexathlon and Heptathlon respectively.

Student-athletes pushed their boundaries to match up to their Malaysian competitors, with 13 out of the 16 U13 and U14 student-athletes also achieving Personal Best scores in the combined events.
