Both the boys’ and girls’ dorms were rewarded with an extra 30 minutes of sleep this morning since they went to bed quietly and on time last night. However, several rooms were still up early because of the excitement of the ELITEAM Olympics!
In addition to the quick-feet Slalom, Berg Und Tal, and Woods Obstacle, we added new elements to the agility course, along with a Team challenge that included the “Pain & Agony” sleds, and finally some Paintball shooting for accuracy. Congratulations to Tayler K who was able to score perfectly, hitting all five targets using only 6 shots!!! Impressive.
After seeing the Berg Und Tal competition, I would imagine the times were only separated by hundredths as each competitor was in rhythm, fast, and focused. I was also impressed at the dexterity of the Slalom runners as they used a variety of techniques… arms, hands, and fingers… to clear the gates. Lastly, a shout out to Alice for choosing the BIG log for the Log Squats at the start of the Obstacle.
Eliteam has evolved over 20 years, but what has always been consistent throughout is the 100% commitment and performance of the ELITEAM athletes. On behalf of the entire staff, GREAT JOB and we hope to see you next year!
