The London Olympics in 2012, in particular, inspired a good number of young people to engage in Athletics, to train and compete often on the world stage. So far no Vietnamese person has ever won an Olympic medal for athletics’ events, although they have in other areas. But things may be about to change! Today all the students spent the day at San Dien Kinh Stadium in My Dinh for our Secondary Sports Day. All students had the opportunity to try out many different sports, involving jumping, throwing and running moving up a level to use the more technical equipment. Whilst the events were looking for eventual individual winners, student scores also contributed to an overall house competition. The overall house will be announced during the Prize Giving Assembly. Following the excitement of the individual events in the morning for our students, our best students then competed in the afternoon against other schools from Hanoi (BIS, VinSchool and the Olympia School). It was a great opportunity and as usual the additional competition raised the standards – and pride – with BVIS Hanoi winning the trophy. This was a very enjoyable end to the week.
