Day Nineteen – ISCA Olympics

Hey y’all! I’m a U.S. student at ISCA, and today I had the honour of watching the ISCA Olympics. The ISCA Olympics happen once a year, and each year one country gets the honour of taking home the treasured 1st place bragging rights and some merch. The competition started off by getting our countries into groups. Then, the groups competed in different sports. The races on the track were the most thrilling to watch. The kids who did long jump were jumping like pros, they went pretty far. The rugby toss was really satisfying to watch. We even had a dizzy obstacle course. At the end of the Olympics, we had a relay race, almost as exciting as a track meet. Sadly, my country, Tibet, tripped a little and got like, second to last. Later, there was a barbecue. It was a lot of fun, and we took lots of pictures with our friends from other countries to look back on when we leave. After some ice cream, we went to the dance. This was the most fun part of yesterday. The DJ’s played lots of fun songs to dance and sing too. Then we ended the night and went to bed.
