“UMSA, SHOTGUN! CHI-CHAK – BOOM!”
Welcome to the third day of the Bersatu Games! Apparently, the temperature today dropped drastically and it was definitely the coldest out of the other days we’ve stayed so far in Dunedin. It was kind of a bad day to have a particularly lower temperature as there were many sports that needed to be held at the great outdoors. But that did not stop us from trying; everyone put on their thermals, winter jackets and embraced the cold winter weather with a positive spirit.
