I obviously didn't recognise Nea without O clothing. How did she go?
Despite only being 12 she was entered into an intermediate PLC 800m team and finished a credible 5th. Beforehand she was convinced she would be last so took the first lap very conservatively before realising she wasn't out of her depth.
2:27? That would have got her 5th overall in the Junior results. I guess the school is trying to maximise their pointscore by filling as many vacant slots as they can. She'll run much faster next time.
