Sports Day for Years 4-6 (and 7-12) at the Olympic Youth Development Centre was great fun. Here are a few snaps from the day....featuring O, the new 400 meter record-holder (to be confirmed) and winner of the standing broad jump (190cm) and bean bag throw (27.2).
|Fabulous effort in the long jump.|
|crossing the finish line at the end of his 400 m ... funny face - he couldn't conceal his pleasure with his run which was very carefully, strategically and handily won!|
|JUMPING thru the finish -- this was the final heat of the 80m sprint....3 runners for Tamarind House and only O racing for Mopane....he put his all into the finish! Exciting stuff! It was a photo finish but O crossed the line 3rd of 4 runners.|
Contrary to what the photos show....there were TONS of other kids and great moments captured but I'm always reluctant to put other peoples' kids up -- there has to be SOME privacy left in the world, eh?
