Sport day report, 20th October 2019
On Sunday the 20th of October the spectacle of the annual HdB Fall semester sports day began. Members of the dormitory awoke bright and early for a rigorous morning of entertainment, laughter, and shenanigans, followed by the promise of pizza at the end.
The event started at 9 with a stretching and warm-up session led by the ever-enthusiastic Ashif Equal. Some of the sleepier members managed to join us at this time and eventually we had enough people to make 4 whole teams. Sporting events organized for the day included basketball, table tennis, dodge ball, and an egg-carry relay – all of which were chosen to challenge our participants technically, physically and mentally. The teams were tried to be chosen in a fair way and during the activities, some adjustments were made due to the fairness of the team composition.
During the different games, friendships flourished and understandings of each other deepened in the environment of the HdB garden. The participants showed consideration towards each other and when someone got hurt he*she would immediately be replaced. Everyone was able to work up a sweat and the pizza and drinks were very welcome at the end.
The Sports Day Toban’s would like to thank all of those who participated and made the event possible. The true spirit of HdB visible in compassion, ambition, and deliberateness of the participants was evident in all of you that day.
