The annual Orange Elementary School Olympics took place at the Orange Fairgrounds today from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
For eleven years Jim Ronai has been running the event, and more than 150 Orange 4th and 5th-grade 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 the competitions. They show good sportsmanship and support one another during the games.
A large crowd of parents, teachers, and siblings were there to cheer on these phenomenal athletes.

Included in the fun was emcee/DJs Jimmy Pino, filling in for longtime participant Eddie Choiniere. Both are Orange natives and Ronai’s childhood friends, who year, after year, make the afternoon and evening entertaining for everyone on the fairgrounds.

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place athletes in each event receive medals during the award ceremony at the conclusion of the games.
