" Oh No'' I said to myself." Today is Athletics and I am so scared". "Could this day get any worse?"
I shouldn't have said that. My friend came running up to me huffing and puffing. " We are versing the 11 year olds!"she exclaimed Why oh why was this happening to me.
Everyone had to get their face painted. On my face I got a T because i am in Tainui (Blue). The paint on my face felt gooey. It felt like chocolate had melted on my face. "Why oh why did athletics have to be today" I said depressed.
" Shotput first" I heard someone shout out. "Oh no why did we have to do shotput first, I know I have a weak arm. "Here we are , at our first activity for the day". The first person went up. "Bang the ball dropped on the ground. It was a really good throw. My turn kept on creeping closer and closer. "Your up Selena " said Miss Tito. "1 2 3 throw!". The ball went flying like a bird , I didn't come anything because It wasn't far enough.
"Hooray we are doing high jump" I screamed nervously. The turns were zooming by like a rocket ship. It was my turn. I ran as fast as a cheetah and flew over like a airplane going in for landing. "Woohoo I made it over the pole". I can't believe that you can accomplish stuff if you believe in yourself. Later on I found out that I came 3rd equal.
The last event was the relays ( My favourite part of the whole day). It was the children against the parents and teachers. The most coolest thing about this was that my mum was in the parents team and I was versing her. When my partner came and gave me our blue baton I let out a burst of speed and was in the lead. My heart was pounding like it was going to pop out of my chest. At the end of the day I went home with my family who were there to support me, and on the way back home I bought me an Ice-cream.
My highlight of the day were the relays because it was fun. I can't wait until next years athletics.
