Last week Metis employees enjoyed a day in the sun whilst competing in the first annual Metis sports day. The Highways & Infrastructure side of the company went head-to-head with Water & Environment in an ultimate battle of sporting prowess.
Three rounds of egg and spoon races saw the highways team pulling strongly ahead at the start of the afternoon. After losing this and the sack race, the Water & Environment team’s only consolation was the good weather. However, a strong performance from Sarah and Louise in the three-legged race roused the team nicely in time for the tug of war. The 50m dash had the highways team sprinting towards the top prize again with a fantastic performance from Onyeka.
Next, we discovered that volleyball is team Metis’ new favourite sport, courtesy of our resident volleyball coach Donita. Finally, the day was rounded off with a heated game of rounders. And of course, some celebratory pints in Richmond Green.
Congratulations to the Highways & Infrastructure team, the reigning champions of Metis Sports Day 2022!
