We had our first Panathlon of this academic year today at Braintree College, Essex and it was a bit different to all the others! I was asked to do the announcing for the competition.This meant I had to stand in front of 50 competitors and 50 adults and tell everyone what to do !! I’d never done the announcing before but thought I would give it a go. I was a bit nervous, but it was good training for me for the rest of the year.
The Panathlon was exciting and had a good level of competition throughout. The best part of the day was in one of the races where a wheelchair competitor was going backwards instead of forward-that’s a first for me!
Everyone did really well !!
