Hillcrest Christian Annual School Cross – Country Championships 2011
Today was Hillcrest Christian Annual School Cross-Country Championships 2011. Two periods were off for the students to run in the race at 1:30pm. Aravind, my nephew, told me in the morning that he was taking part in the 4km race in the boys’ race. He also predicted that he is aiming for 4th position. At 4pm plus, Aravind was back and was happy that he came in 4th. I congratulated him for his performance. He also recounted to me that he had to fight hard to get the 4th position. I have asked him for an interview and he answered me.
An Interview With Aravind Thiruselvam – Secondary 3 Student from Hillcrest Christian College
How did you find that race?
I found the race rather difficult as I was competing with people who have been preparing for the race.
How many people participated?
Nearly 600 students participated in the race.
Did you train hard for the race?
To be honest I did not train much for the race, but I trained 3 times per week, that’s all. I think that I will do much better if I had trained more,
Can you tell us on the reults of the race and details of your performance?
Well, it was a tough fight for the fourth postition as I had to fight hard with Jarrod Mcaleese. For our under 14 age group boys race, the first second and third went to Alex Cross, Chris Webber, and Chris Agnew, respectively.
How did your coach feel about the race?
My coach was proud of mine and the team’s performance. Mr Dennis congratulated us after the finish of the race for our effort.
What is your next goal?
My next goal is to prepare for the state Cross Country. Based on today’s performance, the top 6 runners will be selected to compete in this event, and I will be looking forward to train hard and perform well for this upcoming event.
How did your parents feel about this?
My parents felt very proud at this achievement.
