On 24th of May we went with the 3rd Primary School of Vrontados to the athletics school tournament of Chios Island. Mainly children from 5th and 6th class were participating for our school and they even earned some prices.
Our children participated in several disciplines: the 1000m run, where one girl from our school got the 3rd place, the 50m sprint, where some of our children took part, shooting far with a nerf ball, where one child was honored with the 3rd price and finally the relay race, where we didn’t win.
The price of the relay race was handed over by the famous Greek athlete Christophoros Merusis who will line up as Greek representative for marathon in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August 2016. He is preparing himself for the competitions here in Chios and could find some time for the local children during his training program. The children were very excited about that and collected auto grams and photos from and with him.
All in all it was a very nice morning, we were happy to be with the children and to be able to support them in these sport competitions. They all did a very good job and have all reasons to be proud. Well done!
