Having been triumphant in the qualifying rounds, Luton were represented at the competition by Hillborough Junior School and Pirton Hill Primary School.

Since winning the Town competition in November the Pirton Hill students had been training hard, giving up time after school and during lunchtimes to work on their skills.

The children had to compete in a range of sprint races, endurance races, long jump, triple jump, vertical jump, speed bounce, chest push and javelin. Pirton triumphed with 324 points, while Hillborough finished fourth with 252 points.
