New GISST records

Last weekend, the FIS hosted the GISST Track and Field event here in Erlangen, with more than 200 guest athletes, 30 guest coaches, external officials, and many, many FIS staff members, students and parents involved. It was a fantastic athletic event overall and everyone involved seemed to enjoy it. We had some great performances too:

  • Varsity Girls achieved two individual gold medals
  • U14 Girls  achieved one individual gold medal
  • U14 Boys achieved two individual gold medals, gold in 4x100m relay, one individual silver and two bronze medals. Lukas from Grade 8 not only won the high jump competition, setting the new GISST record to 1,72 cm, but he also won the shot put with the new GISST record of 15,90 m. Finally, our U14 Boys were very successful in the team competition as well, finishing in third place overall this year.

Way to go FIS Dragons!

Related to the GISST Track and Field event we hosted, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the whole community, especially hosting families, parents who helped with the food stand, staff members and student helpers, for their time, enormous effort and endless commitment. Your support is very much appreciated! Thank you!
