tool and pass the halfway point. Then, the second and the last team pass the
halfway point with seven legs. The team that first reaches the finish line
needed a lot of cooperation in order to get in the fast lane. At first, they walked
slowly, but I was able to see the players who were running well. The triumph of

many more events such as " Bouncing a Ball Together" and " Throwing
a Ball, " which holds the ball high in the ball.
