I had gone to millennium school Surat , for my athletic taluka level competition where I participated in event of 3km fast walking. A lot of efforts were put into the event before the final day. I improved on my stamina , fast walking skills and also improved my timing to complete the race. One the final day I got selected for the District competition so yes mission accomplished ! However it wasn’t the first time that I participated in athletics, but it was the first time that I participated in Under 19 category. Due to which I had other people with whom I had to compete with. Usually it’s just 1 person that I need to compete with which makes victory easy, but this time I had to compete with 3 other girls and all of them were good.
The challenges that I faced were to take out time from academics and work on my throwing skills, because I did not pay more attention to sports I couldn’t do well. During the entire process I tried to manage my time and tried to improve my skills which really helped.
Through this activity I learnt that I should not be overconfident in whatever I do because that might not always lead me to victory. Also, I thought I that I required more practice because my performance wasn’t exactly my best. To improve my performance I used to come early to school before the event which did help to a certain extent but could have been improved, by coming early I showed commitment by learning new techniques which helped me sharpen my skills
Moreover i also undertook service activity by photographing the event and also measuring distance of the jump for long jump
