Donna on the Side

2004 Citi Hispanic Games

by Donna Dye

The Hispanic Games is one of the largest meets of the season. The fans and athletes fill up the Armory. Energy is everywhere as the athletes run, jump and throw and the crowd cheers, screams and hollers. Inspired by music from the Oscar winning "Chariots of Fire" and "Y.M.C.A.", athletes race around the banked track. In the end many new meet records are made and there is satisfaction of a day well spent and enjoyed by all.
