A very successful day for the Glenwood boys with the main performance of the day going to young Sifiso Mvimbe after underperforming in his 200m placing at fourth place which he was very disappointed with, he broke the record that has been standing since 1999 of 11,60s. Mvimbe ran an impressive 11.50s. The boys were very well behaved and it was evident that the boys in green had all eyes on them on both the track and field. Thank you to Mr Dos Santos for accompanying the boys.
