Crowds got rowdy in support for the stick horse race, fly on the wall and egg toss.

Everyone was especially in anticipation for the silent Russet quiz.

The chariot race was another big hit that is a classic every year.

“We do a figure eight. There’s someone with a sleeping bag in the back. We have ropes and we run in a figure eight and it was just everyone cheering mostly booing because it’s 3 to 1, but it was still is just crazy and cool to be in the moment,” Sophomore Chance Waite said.

Shelley High School students plan the activities and themes every year, and they even make room to create brand new obstacles.

“We have a pirates of the well they called it rust it’s of the caribbean where you were rolling on the floor, moving a kid on the table on top of you across the floor. That was a new one. That was pretty fun.”

The student body and faculty has one goal in mind through the olympics, unity.
