Who has been watching the Olympics lately? I DEFINITELY have, I find the Olympics very interesting. But If I could change one thing in the Olympics it would be, having sports like Football and water polo. I thing the Olympics is a place where individual sports belong like Diving and swimming, The Olympics is a place where people can show others how good they are! Rugby has the World cup, and Football has FIFA world cup but there is no world cup for swimming or diving is there. But that is just MY opinion.
I do swimming at Raumati swimming club, and my coach is an ex- Olympian. His name is Jon Winter and he has been to two Olympics. Three if you count this one. Jon didn’t compete at these Olympics. You see for the past 3 weeks a guy named Amini Founa has been training Raumati pool for the Olympics. Amini is only doing one race which is 100 meters breaststroke. Now I have told some people this story about Amini but they all say “ only one race” again this is my opinion… but I think just going to watch the Olympics is FANTASTIC experience let alone competing at them.
Did you watch the closing ceremony? It was amazing (I think it was a better than the opening ceremony) I mean they got “One Direction” and “Stomp” to perform. There were fireworks and a big truck that drove around .
6 gold medals how amazing. Did you hear about Valerie Adams? How she got gold because Nadzeya Ostapchuk from Belarus was found to be taking steroids. What are steroids? Well they are drugs that people take to make them look stronger and more powerful. Nadzeya Ostapchuk though the shot put and it was one meter further than her Valerie’s record.
