Kilchuimen Primary School Olympics (Day Two)

Another day, another round of exciting Olympic competition. On day two we headed to the track for our running races. Everyone took part in the sprint races (50m) and the older class stretched their legs on a longer distance (200m & 400m). There were a number of excellent performances and close contests. A number of French athletes finished fourth in the running events which allowed us to discuss the heartbreak of finishing just outside the medals for those competing in Rio.

The results are shown below.

The 200m race was particularly close, while Lilly produced an excellent performance giving her a clear advantage into the final straight, the sprint for the silver and bronze was very exciting. Jack came home very fast overtaking two other athletes and closed quickly on Laura. However, Laura held enough back to give a final kick of speed at the end and just hold the charging Jack off on the line.

400m
P7  
1st Kai Frost Germany
2nd Isla MacArthur China
3rd Toni Demirev Hungary

Following these events we were able to discuss with pupils about the challenges of sporting competition, the joy of winning and the disappointment of not doing as well as you hoped. It was a great opportunity to recognise our own strengths and, while we can’t be good at everything, there is always something we excel at.
