Me & the Maldives

All about life in Maldives! And other fun things in my life …

Inter-School Swimming

Hey everyone! I’m back with an amazing scoop!  No, not the ice-cream kind of scoop. (Scoop is just another word for news, if you haven’t heard)

My cousin Zaina participated in the inter-school swimming competition held a week ago. As you can guess, the competitions were held in the swimming track in the warm Maldives’ sea (not far from the shore. We can see it nicely by sitting on the ledge of the closest wall.) It was awesome I tell you. As Maldives is covered with 99% water, so every citizen has to know how to swim. And all of the swimmers (just kids above 6 years I think) were really great. They sure were fast. I was really surprised.  I watched most of the competitions held with my own eyes. (Not from the TV or anything like that.)

My cousin’s school is just gonna be 5 years this year I think [not sure.]. It is the first time their school (Hiriya School) is participating in the competition and they did well. And what’s more, they only have an under 10 team. But they were spectacular I tell you. The competition was a hoot. I guess you would want to watch the competition so I have added a video of one heat (A heat in swimming is like a group of swimmers swimming the same event.)My cousin participated in. I hope you enjoy it.
