Sports Day emphasises team-work

I was not active and didn't like athletics until last year's Sports Day when I won the 4 x 400 metre relay. I was also a leader of the house cheering team so we got lots of praise.

I did not take part in any individual events in this year's Sports Day but concentrated on the 8 x 100 m, 4 x 100 m and 4 x 400 m relays. I knew I would not be able to win, but I still practised hard. I was surprised to win a silver medal in the 4 x 400 m relay. From these competitions I have realised that team work is important as all the members have to co-operate and devote themselves to the task.

The climax of the day was the teachers' 4 x 100 m relay and the inter-school 4 x 100 m relay. I felt a bit disappointed when my house did not win because this was my last Sports Day at the school and I may not take part next year.
