Blog on Greek Olympics By: Trevor & Michael

During the Greek olympics, the three sixth grade core classes competed against each other in a series of events. Each core class was a Greek city-state and Mrs. Bibayoff was Sparta, Mrs. Hanson's was Athens, and Mrs. Meindles was Olympia. Each class had students dressed up to represented the gods and goddesses as well.

Each class had representatives to compete in the athletic events, and one person could only be in two events besides the relay. First event was the 100 meter dash and the winners were Rory for the girls from Athens and Caleb for boys from Olympia. Next was Long Jump and for boys Elijah B. won, and his team was Athens. Nicole A. won for the girls long jump, and she won for Sparta. Wrestling was won by Sparta for boys and girls from Nicole C. and Ryder F. Just for fun, Nicole C. and Ryder faced off to see who’d win and Nicole won! In shot put for boys, Caleb B. won for Olympia. Discus for girls was won by Senara of Sparta. Our last event was the relay, and the team that won was from Athens for both boys and girls. For the first time in the LE Greek Olympics’ history, there was a three way tie with each city-state winning four gold medals.We all had “ambrosia and nectar” (aka root beer floats) afterward. We had a great time. We hope everyone else had as good of a time as we did!

  7. I still didn't think we would have a 3 way tie because I thought 1 class would win it all. But great job to the competitors.

  13. You both did a great job capturing the Greek Olympics Trevor and Michael! Some of the highlights, in my opinion were the ambrosia nectar, the class three-way tie, and the events. I felt each class did a great job. Go Sparta!

  26. The Greek Olympics was so fun, as it wrapped up out study topic of Ancient Greece. All classes did so well, and afterall, it was a three way tie. I also got to compent in events, so I had a great opportunity to do fun things I cant do at home, as well as watching them. The wrestling was one of the most fun event to watch in my opinion. Great Blog !!!
