Sports day 14th March

 

The venue was the Olympic stadium in Maadi so Maddy and I walked across at 8am for an 8:15 start. Of course it didn’t start on time in fact I think we waited over an hour for the festivities to begin. I had been given the job of ‘Finishing Line Official’ and was responsible for making decisions on the final position of the runners. There was a team of timers supporting me and sitting the runners in the final places and mostly things went ok. There were a couple of occasions where the stop watches let us down and at one point it was hard to hear the starter’s air horn. He didn’t get a gun because ‘they’ thought people would be unsettled with it . All in all it was a busy day and I was relieved to be working rather than being on crowd control.

Maddy ran in the 800m, for Thebes, there were 2 competitors and she managed a valiant second.
