CISA Kids 2009
The IAAF officially started its new kids tour, the CISA Kids 2009. This education-through-sport programme was launched in Sangalkam, Senegal last week. Its a sporting, artistic, and educational programme for elementary school students. The kids had the possibility to run 2 XC races in Sangalkam. Both the boys and the girls race was run in front of officials and sport autorities, giving them the possibility to show their potential and talents. It's not a only a great event for african kids, it also produced some fabulous pictures. The picture above was taken during the girls XC race. The girl in front seems like she is really enjoying the race even though they had to run quite a distance. It's good to see athletics being promoted all over the world. Hopefully one of these kids will manage to improve upon his future thanks to the sports, and even more so I hope all of these kids had a wonderful time going out there and be in the spotlight for only a day.
