I have been doing athletics for six years, I love it, especially the competitions. I remember that cross-country race where it was very tense and I was so nervous, it was the final and I really wanted to place.
I remember one of the organisers shouting “Marks, Set, Go!” and we were off. It was a 2000 metres race, so I had to set a pace. I overtook three girls and now I was in fourth place so that’s when I knew I should run….FAST!
I overtook the girl who was third, but she was right behind me, I started to sprint and finished. I had placed!
