imageIt’s the holiday season, and exactly twelve days before Christmas. So in the spirit of the season, I thought I would retool the Twelve Days of Christmas to fit my favorite sport. This should be sung to the tune of the original. So a quick departure from the serious before closing out the year, my twelve days of track Christmas.


“On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me”:

  • A squad that doesn’t drop the baton
  • Two unexpected stars
  • Three new tracks
  • Four world level meets
  • Five gold medals
  • Six runners running
  • Seven steeplers leaping
  • Eight sprinters training
  • Nine vaulters vaulting
  • Ten jumpers jumping
  • Eleven javelins flying
  • Twelve throwers throwing
