First Day at Camp

Photojournalist of the Day: Lestein A. (Kazakhstan)

Today we arrived at the basketball camp and began preparing to learn more about the sport. For the first time in my life I played basketball and it was a very good experience. I cannot convey my impressions with words. We met many experienced players and we worked with these people on the court. We found new friends and we exchanged experiences with each other. We learned the rules and the game itself while playing basketball. It was a special day for me.

Today was a great day, and I am sure that tomorrow we are going to have even more fun. Thanks for your attention!
