Seth M.R Jaipuria School hosted the ASISC zonal athletic meet 2019 for Uttar Pradesh Zone A and B.With participation from over 38 schools and 400 students, the event was held from 1st to 3rd of August, 2019.
The founder of the Modern Olympic games, Pierre de coubertin once said, “ the important thing in the games is not winning but taking part. Just like the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.”
Seth M.R. Jaipuria School with a strong belief in celebrations which are true in the spirit of true sportsmanship held the competitions in various disciplines, from 3km and 5km walk to relay race: races in 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m were competed with well worked out strategies. Field events high jump, long jump, javelin, short- put and discus throw showcased the qualities of agility.
Despite the fierce competition, the athletes showed great camaraderie among themselves and bonded over the discussion of each others’ strengths and weaknesses.The scorching sun could not deter the determination of the athletes who were all out to win.
The participants left with achievements with the clanking of medals which sounded like bells that were ringing to mark the close of the meet.It surely was a great experience for every sports person present on the field for those three days. One thing that was apparent was that- winning and losing is a part of life; what counts is trying to the best of one’s abilities.
When your legs can’t run anymore, run with your heart.
The five S’s of sports training are stamina, speed, skill, strength and spirit but the greatest of these is spirit. And an undying spirit goes a long way.
We hope to meet the new sports challenges in 20120!!
