Friday the 18th of march. Athletics day. I never liked athletics. Not until I was one of the leaders. Excitement and nervousness Were the dominant emotion inside me. Just looking at everyone was like reading a huge sign that says ‘BRING IT ON’.

Racing against the fastest girls that I know was so nerve-wracking. Elizabeth, Tokilupe, and Fetuli and Emelia were my opponents. Mrs Pole banged the two pieces blocks together.They all ran so fast they looked like a blur. I just jogged. Not caring if I came last or first. my team cheered for me encouragingly. unsurprisingly I came last.

Hundred metre races were next. The fittest people only raced. The races came and they went just like the first. None of the competitors looked like they could carry on. But they were all so eager to win.

The chanting competition was very embarrassing. We were all to confident to notice that we only had a minute to do our chants. my team the kiwis had 12 chants to do. It was so scary especially when we told everyone we were going to win. We...... Came.... last. I was to sad to even talk to the others. But thinking about the team work we did made me feel like an actual leader. (eve\though we were the noisiest yet the most energetic team) :D
