Olympic Day

“Let’s go Scotland, let’s go (clap clap clap),” Matthew (our leader) yelled. We were playing a game against Italy. The game we played was called 3-legged soccer. Today was our second “Olympic Day.” Instead of just us seniors, it was the whole school.

A sea of multi-coloured t-shirts were hubbed in excitement. Talking and yelling from one side to another, we were getting ready to start off our olympic rotation. Before we did anything we had to do our procession. For our procession we made chants and we cheered.

After a while we started our rotation of various activities. The activity that my team and I first had was 3-legged soccer. The rules were to tie your legs with a pair. It was actually hard to maneuver. Trying to get away from my opponents was hard as well because we had our legs tied up and we also wanted to get a score for our team. Winning to us was important because if we won we would win the big prize.

After all 6 rotations we came across to our last rotation. I was disappointed because I didn’t get to play. This rotation was actually my favourite rotation of them all. The game we played was Basketball. I was energetic to play but when I heard that wasn’t allowed to play I went and sat down with my heart full of sadness. I was even looking forward to playing against my own brother. He was the leader of the Jamaican team.

In 3rd place there were equals, and those 2 countries were Sweden and Argentina. In 2nd place it was Spain. The winner was Ireland.
