Micro Games Opening Ceremony Attracts The People Of Pohnpei

Sunday is not a usual day for excitement and commotion, but on this day Pohnpei made an exception. Hundreds of people gathered at the Track and Field to witness the Opening Ceremony of the Micro Games on July 20, 2014.

The events that were held during the ceremony intrigued many spectators and athletes from different delegations. From flag parachuting to traditional war dances, the audience were left hanging in amusement.

The delivery of the flag was a particular highlight. Delivered by a US Marine skydiver, the crowd was in awe as the flag was unvieled in the sky. As he landed on the ground, there were cheers of amazement heard around the track.

The flashiness of the flag unvieling was contrasted by the performance of a traditional war dance. The crowd clapped along with the beating drums as they celebrated their natural heritage.

With all the excitement witnessed today, it is only just the beginning. As the crowd left the ceremony there was a feeling of anticipation for what the next 10 days of competition would bring.
