AIS third overall in first ever HCMC primary school sports carnival

I had a great day out tagging along with Fleur and the AIS team to the inter-school sports carnival at the main stadium in D10 on Saturday. The minute I walked in I had flash backs to 'little athletics' from when I competed as a kid. I got right into it and found myself standing on the seats cheering along all day!  Quinn did some field sports like medicine ball throwing and jumps. She also ran the 800. This was my favorite race in high school. Its a very strategic race and I explained to Quinn and Rebeka the importance of saving some energy the final lap and coming home strong. ( A negative split).  The girls followed instructions and competed well considering they had minimal training.!  The school overall did excellent and really punched above our weight!
The kids outperformed many bigger schools!
Quinn ran the 800m. A very tough race for any kid!!
