A Day At The Races

I attended the Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) 37th Annual Swimming Championships today. I gave a short speech. I hope I inspired them with what I said. I tried to remind them of the power of the AC Spirit, the importance of a well-rounded education, and the strength of self-belief, conviction and perseverence. I also talked briefly about the Channel Swim and what it means.

I also handed out the prizes. With my back in bad shape, it wasn't ideal to be bending down to shake the hands of all the little kids, but it was important to look them in the eye and speak to each and every one of them as I handed them their prizes.

At the end of the day, if I touched one of their lives and made a positive difference, it'll all have been worthwhile.

Not that you guys are short, but my back's so sore that anything but keeping it absolutely straight hurts.
