Day 132 - Give it your best 'shot'

Today in Gym my students were practicing for their upcoming Track and Field day. We refer to this day as Spring Challenge at our school. We have 2 challenge days during the year. The first is about doing something good for yourself while helping others. The Spring Challenge is about setting and beating personal bests. There are 8 events (obstacle race, 100m race, long jump, shot put, discus, high jump, baton relay and cooperative games). Today students worked on the obstacle race, 100m run and as the photo shows - shot put. They worked hard on their technique, including the grunt upon release. It looks like we might be seeing many personal bests.
