Hello readers! Long time no blogging!
Now, I'm going to tell you a little about Dewa Athena. Well, actually it's already late, but nevermind...

Dewa Athena is an acronym of Olimpiade Siswa, Ajang Tunjuk Kebolehan, Eksistensi, dan Kebersamaan Siswa. It is an annual sport competition in my school, SMAN 3 Bandung, where the 10 graders compete with the 11 graders to be the best. This year's event was held on March 25 for the elimination, April 1 for the semifinal, and April 8 for the final. It was held at Lapangan Bali. 

There were some games, and here I'm going to explain them one by one.
  • The first game is basketball. It's only available for the boys. Yahya, Ziyad, Dio, Ernest, and I were the players. Our first enemy was X IPA 6, and we LOST the game. It was so disappointing, but we didn't lose hopes for the other games. 
  • Gobak sodor! It is actually Indonesian traditional game. We sent 10 persons to be our representatives against X IPA 4. But, again, we LOST. Well, that was a bit pathetic!
  • Futsal, one of the most favorite game for boys. But in Dewa Athena, there was also futsal for girls. First, the boys' game. Ziyad, Yahya, Ernest, Kevin, and I played. Our first enemy was X IPA 10. Well it was not a really serious game, so we could win. We went to the next step : against X IPA 3. Before the game, we thought that it will be so hard. But, the reality didn't say so. Thanks God, we won. And finally, the real enemy appeared. No, it was not the final yet, we were just not so lucky because we faced X IPA 6 in the semifinal. X IPA 6! They were famous for their Fawwaz, Rofi, and the other great players. So, even though we tried our best, the result could be predicted. We were defeated, badly.
  • Next game : run relay! It was Adel, Gita, Ziyad, and Dio who played very well. They made us won 2 times, until the third time, Dio wasn't there because he had to join Christianity class, so I had to replace him, and then we lost. It was so sad.
  • Dodge ball : a tough game! Honestly it was hard to win. We, boys, lost on our first game. But luckily, the girls did it well so they could pass to the next game. Even though they lost at the end, it was such a fun game!
  • Tug of war! We call it Tarik Tambang. It's also a traditional game here in Indonesia and we usually play it when celebrating Independence Day. It's not a big deal for us because we had KENNY! We won easy enough for several times. But sadly, it happened again. Since Kenny had to join Christianity class, we didn't have enough power to win.
  • Volleyball : the most favorite game of mine! This was what I waited for. I was so excited! I've prepared a great plan and formation for us to play. But the reality didn't say so. I had a really bad cramp on my legs. I couldn't walk well. That really made me so sad. But I didn't lose hope. I gave my best plan to my friends. Even tough we lost, my friends had tried their best and that was enough for me.
  • The last and the greatest game : BADMINTON! I think it was the most exciting game. Why? Because we did it very well. Starts for the boys. Ernest and Ziyad were the hero. They played very cool and great. But sadly, we weren't so lucky at that time. After winning so easy for several time, we lost. That was not a problem, because I think it was not about winning or losing, it was about effort. Next, the girl's game. Najwa and Dita became our representatives. They tried really hard and they made it to the final! In the final, they've played at their best, but X IPA 7 played better. Although we didn't make it, but we were really proud of this great victory!

So, that was all the games. Dewa Athena gave us a sweet memory. We became more compact and knew each other. I hope we're still allowed to join the next year's event.

Thanks for reading!
