A victorious moment from last year’s olympics.
On Wednesday, June 11, the Orange Elementary School Olympics are scheduled to take place at the Orange Fairgrounds from 4-7 p.m. Rain date June 12.
For eight years Jim Ronai has been running the event, and this year more than 150 Orange students were conditioned and ready to compete against their peers from the three elementary schools during the games.
The student athletes must qualify in order to compete in one or more of the seven featured events.One of the goals of the program is to give children an opportunity to display their athletic talents in a school affiliated venue.The hope is that many of these students will associate this positive experience with their academic experience and pride in their work, thus producing the foundation for the development of true student athletes.
The kids work hard to qualify and play to win during the competitions. They show good sportsmanship and support one another during the games.
You may come and cheer on these phenomenal athletes.
