Last week on Friday the 19th of August Vardons senior syndicate had their very own Wacky Olympics. The events we had were discus, straw javelin, Wheelbarrow race and counter toss. Discus was in the hall, straw javelin was also in the hall, the wheelbarrow race was out on the field and the counter toss was on the library deck facing the field. For discus we had a paper plate and we had to throw it like a Frisbee, and then we had to see who could do the furthest throw. For the straw javelin, we had to get our competitors to throw the straw like the discus, and the top three people who got the furthest throw got the gold, silver and bronze medal (as for all the events in our Wacky Olympics) (and also a little paper plate hat with paper leaves on it). In the wheelbarrow race one person had to hold the other person's legs and then they both walk together and need to try get to the end. When they get to the end they swap and try get back to the other side and the fastest people win. And our last event (counter toss) was when our competitors had to get two counters to put on the end of our elbow (fold your arm back first), fling it up and catch with over arm .
