Lisa Carrington's Gold Medal

My favourite athlete is Lisa Carrington. She is an amazing athlete at Canoeing because she came first and won the gold medal this year at the 2012 Olympic Games. Lisa was born in 1989 and where she trains is at Eastern Bay Ohope. She came 1st K2 1000m A Final 2010 World Cup Series. Her favorite food is a slushy (Icy drink) and she lives in a town called Ohope, in New Zealand.

One of Lisa Carrington’s goal was to win a gold medal and she has done it. She competed in the Olympics and reached her goal. Here is a video link about Lisa. She is an amazing athlete to watch and man you had to see her because she was faster than the woman who came first in 2010! (I think).
Just like a tiger hunting for a deer that is totally focused is just like how Lisa got the gold medal. She is not going to keep her eyes off the prize. I’m sure she must have worked hard every morning of the week. I like her cool technique, how she grabs that oar with her long arms and scoops it in the deep water, to reach the finish line. Deep long breaths are helping her body to move even faster.

Make sure you practice because maybe you might be an athlete just like Lisa Carrington. I love canoeing about the same amount as Lisa. I can’t wait until the next Olympics open in Rio in 2016!

Chickens are a bird that can fly sometimes. They can lay up to six eggs and that is amazing. There are little baby chicks in the very tiny eggs.

One of my chickens head got chopped off. It was not a black chicken of course. There was a black rooster that was called Guy.

There are five more left. My favourite one is the black rooster. I want 12 more chickens.

I don’t know what I feed them. They live in a cage. The cage is 12 meters long.

I think that chickens are fast and talented and they are cool.

Valerie Adams

I'm loving the Olympic Games so far are you? Well New Zealand is not as bad as I thought they were going to be. They have to be so proud of themselves and the other countries. The Olympics are a hard challenge for all of us to get into and maybe you might see me at the Olympics one day.

The Men's Hockey Game is on tonight and I think that I'm going to watch it hopeful. Valerie Adams came second last night and boy she was amazing. She could've come first but the other Women came first. The activity that I want to do is canoeing. This is a great moment for all of you to think of the sport  that you will want to do.

Enjoy the rest of the Olympics.
