The Olympic Race by Ahillan
On the 12th of October 2022, I had my first real race – it was two kilometres long! I was nervous, but I was also confident. As we were in the car on the way to the velodrome, I wondered what place I would come.
After one hour, I was waiting at the start line.
As soon as the whistle blew, my body propelled forward and I began the long two kilometres. There I was, running in the twilight. It was tiring. My feet were beginning to hurt, but I still powered on. Finally, I finished the race and was greeted by my loving mom, dad, brother, step mum and step sister. It was a day to be remembered forever. In the end, I placed………30th!!!!!!
