Excited students enjoyed an Olympics themed sports day in the countdown to the London 2012 games.

The event at Blenheim High School saw each team arrive carrying the school’s version of the Olympic torch.

Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded for each event, with special commemorative medals for those breaking school records - some of which had been held for 10 years or more.

The crowds were also entertained by the Blenheim Blaze cheerleading team who performed a special Olympics routine.

To finish the day, the winning teams mounted a podium to cheers from the school community.

Tom Robinson, head of PE, said: "The idea of basing our sports day around the Olympics was a great hit and built on the enthusiasm of the students for the forthcoming spectacle.

"Some of our students will be attending various events at the Olympics and I look forward to hearing about their experiences".
