The highlights of the events however, were witnessed in the short races for both men and women. The reigning champions Thika TTI faced worthy opponents in what was termed as the “Battle of the TItans”. A highly rated Competition emerged from Nairobi TTI, PC Kinyanjui and Masai TTI but our boys and girls managed to silence the speculation of new champions in the region with 200metres win in the men category and women categories as well as 100meters and the 400meters and 800 meters races. The relays too was the obvious category for our boys to shine and they did not disappoint. The ladies 400 x 4 relay team made history in the regions competition by overlapping our lovely opponents before ending the race on a record 4.33.9 minutes
Other games organized included Badminton, Javelin Table Tennis, Triple Jump, Shot Put, Discuss, Long Jump and high Jump in which the hosts (Thika TTI) managed to bag a medal in each of them.
