Yes, the 2022 International Geography Championships have commenced, and as stated, these are just like the Olympics, but in geography. With students from all across the world, this is sure to be an event they will remember for a lifetime. As the flag parade started, all of the states’ and countries’ anthems played.

The names of the competitors were announced, one by one. The flags were held by people from respective locations, marching on and off the stage. Many hands hurt with all the clapping.

Now, let the games begin!
