Olympic Day June 23rd

The world celebrates the birth of the modern Olympics on Olympic Day, June 23rd. We celebrated at 'The Club by promoting the Olympic values and physical fitness. Tuesday was by far the hottest day of the summer so we spend most of our time indoors. We held our own track and field contests including a relay race around the gym, long jump, 50m dash, high jump, disc toss and softball toss. We talked about Chicago's bid for the summer Olympic Games in 2016. It would be pretty cool to have the greatest world stage for sports to be just 5 hours away. I also talked about my Olympic quest in cross country skiing and the importance of sportsmanship. It is fun to be back with the kids again after being in training camps and the Pacific Northwest the past six weeks
