Sports Day

the olympians

Like Track and Field Day, but with a China twist.

Sports are huge in Nanjing’s schools, especially with China still riding on the high of the Beijing olympics and the upcoming Nanjing Youth Olympics in 2014. For Sports Day at the schools, each class puts on a little spectacle and competes in the opening ceremonies. Then the particularly athletic kids get a shot to win medals for the long jump, 200 meter dash, and so on. There are over two thousand kids, so it’s really difficult to get everyone on the field together for one event.
