ATHLETICS

In 1950 a very successful athletics tournament was held at Ngaruawahia, including running and field events. Useful help was obtained from Ardmore Training College. Another smaller tournament took place in 1951. This is an important new departure in Maori sport. It is hoped it will be possible to establish this tournament permanently, and increase the interest of Maori Youth in athletics.
