Blaze arrives at the Northamptonshire School Games with its own trail of glory
In May Northamptonshire Sport launched a campaign to have a Northamptonshire Sainsbury's School Games Mascot.
A competition was held in local schools and over 700 entries were received.
The big reveal of the Northamptonshire School Games Mascot was made during the opening ceremony at the Northamptonshire Sainsbury's Summer School Games with Blaze appearing from the corner of the main field to rapturous applause from the mass audience of athletes.
Jahida Begum from Friars Academy in Wellingborough who designed the winning entry welcomed Blaze to the stage and collected her prize.
Blaze spent the day, cheering along competitors, helping present the medals, and giving high fives to it's new fan club!
Blaze is looking forward to a full diary over the next few weeks, going into schools and will be presenting the Northamptonshire Sainsbury's School Games Trophy to the winning School Sport Partnership very soon.
