Over 80 Enjoy HIPPO Event

THE first HIPPO – Highlands and Islands Performance Participation Opportunity – event of the athletics season took place at Pickaquoy on Sunday, with 47 female and 37 male athletes taking part in the track and field events.

Rather than fighting for podium places, the main aim of the HIPPO events is for athletes to improve their personal best performances, and many athletes did that during their runs, jumps and throws on the day. Results count towards an overall team score. HIPPO takes the form of two local meetings – there will be another Orkney one in June – followed by a Grand Final in Inverness in September with clubs from other areas.
The next event on the calendar for Orkney athletes is a trip to Inverness on Saturday, May 8, for the Highland, Islands and Grampian Regional Championships.
