This Saturday was sports day at the local elementary school. It also happens to be the school where my nieces attend, so I went to see them compete. The day consists of various running, relay, and some strange events. Like four children running carrying a long stick and going in circles around pylons with it. After that they return to the line and all of the children in line have to jump over the stick. Yes this does sound potentially dangerous, and yes several kids were tripped or knocked down by the big stick. You can see a short video of it below. At the end of the day the scores were revealed and the red team won.
