Had another sports day with the school on Saturday. Weather was good. I was in Shirogumi – we lost 🙁
Heres a shot of me playing tug of war at my last schools (hanamigawa daini) sports festival. I couldn’t stay the whole day so I missed out on some of the events – managed to score a free lunch though! My previous boss is also in the shot, see if you can guess who. Ill give you a hint, he/she is not holding a red flag.
Oh, our team (赤組) won – both rounds. Put my back out for a week though, neck was all wonky too. Nevermind.
Sports day wasn’t too bad. Spend most of my time helping out setting up and cleaning up. I was the judge in the Tug of War competition (my team lost) which was quite interesting. There were many games, I have no idea what they were, but one involved a student running along the backs of the other students who would then move to the front again forming a kind of bridge.
I took part in the teachers relay team, but we didn’t win. Some of the students were really fast, and although I could have beaten them all (hahaha) I was running too fast, and when I passed on the baton, the teacher in front of me wasn’t going fast enough and fell to his feet.
My legs are still sore from that 100 meter dash (3 days ago). I should probably take it easy for the next few days and catch up on sleep, as after the sports day, the teachers and I went partying. sooo tired. Need sleep!
Here are some shots of the sports day.
