Each school tried its best and it really paid off. The shows were extraordinary and all students had fun. Varieties ranged from classical dancing to hip hop and breakdance. Our school was excited but also nervous to perform live in front of all the schools. Our team consisted of eight dancers. We all gave our best and worked on our flaws during the past weeks. We practiced whenever we got the time to: at break, at mentoring and of course individually at home. Then the time came! We set up a smoke machine and two disco lights in the sport hall. The atmosphere was perfect!

During the performances, coaches and dancers would rate the shows and afterwards rank them on a board from one to ten. Everyone was thrilled to hear the results. We all knew everyone did their best and it would be hard to decide the winners.

The team of SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz has given their very best. All students of our team participated for the first time in the SIS Cup. 
Of course, we were hoping to win at least one of the disciplines. Maybe the dance competition? We waited impatiently for the award ceremony to start. 
Alas, our team did not win and everybody was a bit disappointed. However, our coach motivated our team again and in the end we agreed, “We gave our best and we’ll try again next time!”

The event that our team was looking forward to the most was the scooter race. Our competitors did their best despite the obstacles being challenging and difficult. The best time in the scooter race was 17.21 seconds! Super quick!  
 
Everyone was very focused and gave their best. We all were supporting and cheering loudly for our team! We are extremely proud of our results in the scooter race and all the other disciplines. The SIS Cup was exhausting for our team but they persevered to the end!

The SIS Cup is a wonderful opportunity for the students to discover new things about themselves. Most of the students at SIS Brasília mentioned that during the training period everyone has found out something new about themselves. One student discovered that if he focuses on something, he will be able to do it successfully and that he can increase his strength and concentration. For another student it was discovering that if she makes an effort and trains hard, she will meet her goals successfully. One student found out that she can run faster and skip rope because she did not know how to skip rope before training for the SIS Cup.

The chess tournament was a new experience for our school's Cup team. It was a bit stressful at first, but once they got into it, it was fun and exciting. Learning how to play virtually with time was tricky at first, but they eventually got used to it. It was interesting to see the other students' games. While the chess tournament was happening, they wondered how their SIS Cup teammates were doing with the individual events. One of our school's players felt stressed, and then he was sad because he lost against the first place finisher, but he was happy about his result in the end.

Our team was ready to fight. Our team, also called “Elite 6”, was made up of: Annika, Arthur, Bebba (aka: Rebecca), Cyrill, Leonardo and Viviane. During practice Viviane managed over 100 jumps in 30 seconds! Incredible! In the match everyone tried their best. You could even see the sweat drops coming from their foreheads. The rain clouds in the distance came nearer as the thunder rumbled. It was so dramatic. When Annika, Arthur, Bebba, Cyrill, Leonardo and Viviane finished, some of them collapsed and drank as much water as they could to recuperate. Some of them even had tears in their eyes because they were so happy that it was finished. Elite 6’s best score was 293 jumps in just two minutes. They didn’t get first place, but everyone was proud of what they achieved.

The SIS Cup 2021 was very special. Everything was online and it was different to the normal SIS Cup. Still, it was a great experience. Luis, Mia, Nina and Sydney participated in the long jump. After the first discipline their nervousness had subsided, thereby improving their performance. All of them were quite happy with their result. Sydney had an astonishing distance jump of 205 cm. Hearing the class cheer for them and making posters for them gave them even more motivation. Their team spirit gave them additional morale.

SIS Winterthur went to the nearby sports hall and participated in three events today: line run, triple jump and medicine ball throwing. Four students started in the line run with the following times: Kalina (16.4 s), Alex (19.25 s), Viola (19.40 s) and Janina (16.93 s). The way to see who wins is simple: whoever runs the fastest in the distance (4x20m) is the winner. However, there are some rules to the race. One of them is one of the hands must touch each line as they turn, except the last line. Another important rule is that each participant has one try. If they have a fail start, they have one other try. If they have a false start at both attempts they are disqualified.

In Männedorf, the mile run took place at the Seestrasse. Louisa, Gabriella and Aisha participated. They left the school joined by the reporters. They then walked the mile to the start, which took about 15 minutes. The reporters took some photos and then the girls started running. Gabriella started off in the lead, Aisha and Louisa were right behind her. Shortly after, Louisa took the lead for the event. The reporters cheered for the girls. In conclusion, Louisa won the race. Her time was 7 minutes 53 seconds. The other girls also did a really good job. Congratulations to Männedorf.
