We had a great time in the gymnasium on Friday participating in the school’s annual Olympics. Members of the fourth grade participated in grueling endurance competitions like the jump rope and hula hoop events and showed their speed and power in various relay races like pony express and the dog sled event.
Personally, I was humbled in my first Olympic event, failing to help the faculty defeat the third grade in the frog jump. I take full responsibility for my team’s loss and vow to train harder than anyone this offseason to ensure that my rookie mistakes will not be repeated in the 2015 games.
I attempted to get a few photos of the day’s events but my camera was not equipped for the speed of the kids. I ended up with a bunch of blurry photos but I put together a small collage of the best photos I ended up with.
