GIFs from a Secondary School Athletic Meet in Kin Town Okinawa
If you ever get an invitation to an Undokai (Sports Day Event) in Japan, don't turn it down.
This was my first, of many, I'll be going to this year.
With a few photos, I can show you highlights from yesterday's entertainment.
The best part of any Undokai, has to be the Eisa performance.
A few of my grand-kids, are in there somewhere.
Dressed in those uniforms, everybody looks the same, to me.
So, I shot over 1,000 photos, to make sure, I didn't miss anyone.
Students, aren't the only ones being athletic.
Parents and teachers get to participate in things like relay races, too.
The crowd really enjoyed, watching these students folk dance.
At that age, I bet the boys were wishing they were somewhere else like, home.
But, they put on a good presentation, being the gentleman that they were.
Here we had a tug-o-war. It was guys against gals.
Parents, teachers, students, grandparents, cousins, nephews and nieces, were involved.
And, the girls won !
When, they held a re-match, I switched cameras and used a wide angle lens.
That way, you could see everybody, when the guys handed those gals a defeat.
But, the women, dragged the boys over the line, again.
You don't suppose, they were just being gentlemen and, letting the ladies win.
Do you ?
