Today we began the Claret International Olympic Games, the 3R's.
First was the opening ceremony in which each country had a student to represent them in the lighting of the tourch. With enthusiasm and seriousness Douglas read the Olympic oath whilst the other students watched from the stands. The first sports taken place were athletics in which torpedo, long jump, 600 metres,80 metres and relay. After the break time it was the swimmers time to take place in the event in the swimming competition, aswell as the football players in the field. Suddenly it was 1:30 pm. The students went for lunch and had free time until 3pm. Then it was the time of the volley and basket ball competition. Now it was time for the Eurovision contest. Every country sang a song about "human rights". We rounded the day with tea time surrounded by colleagues and family with which we ended up the day.
Although the sun was very strong and most of us got burnt, overall we all enjoyed the games that were set up for us. We experienced making new European friends.
We think that this represented the fair playing. The activities proposed were quite difficult but although this, everyone gave their best efforts: there might be three different places, but all of us are winners. To sum up, "where there is a will, there is a way".
