Competition

When we attended a TWD competition, we saw the rows of trophies that the contestants were competing for.

They had been placed against the wall in the corner of the gymnasium. They glittered and shone in the light, attracting the attention of those who dreamed of winning one.

The form of the man on top of the trophy was inspiring. Though I did wonder why there were none with girls on.

I asked the distributor of the trophies and he told me that they are beginning to make them. They had brought in a few for this particular competition; but they had finished very quickly.

I was surprised by the size of the trophies for this competition. Children carried their trophies home with pride – I know that my girls did 🙂

Have you received trophies for competing?

  1. Nice post, Colline, and you made a good point asking about girl figure.. It is nice to know they will make some. I was never interested in sports (not in the form of competition) so my answer is negative 😀

    1. When I was my girls’ age, I never competed either. Even with them, we sort of fell into it unplanned. We thought entering them would give them a goal to strive towards. They certainly increased the number of times they practised.
