The Aveo Kingston Green retirement village in Cheltenham recently hosted the second annual Kingston Green Mini Olympics. Six teams of residents participated in the games, with residents from both the independent living units and serviced apartments coming together to show off their athletic skills. Around 20 other residents attended the occasion to watch the activity and cheer on their village mates. Six stations were set up and teams competed for points at each different station. Each station required the athletes to demonstrate different skills such as throwing, kicking and other eye/hand co-ordination skills. The activities were well supervised by a team of Exercise Physiologists and the emphasis was on fun and participation. At the end of the Mini Olympics, prizes were awarded to the teams based on a points system. The spirit of fun and healthy competition was certainly alive within the village and the day was a great success by all accounts. The Olympics hold special memories for Aveo Kington Green’s Village Manager, Murray Wilson who ran with the Olympic Torch from Crown Casino to the corner of Flinders and Spencer Streets in Melbourne in 2000.
