My Holidays

In the holidays I went to Samiu’s house to pick him up so we can go to the movies. When I got there he was playing in his boxers. So I told him to go change so that we can go to the movies. Then when we were at the movies my mum went and bought us some snacks and she told us to choose the movie. Samiu wanted to watch the men in black. I wanted to watch it too, but it was one hour away. But Ice Age Four was five minutes away so we watched it.

After the movie my mum went and got us 20 dollars each. Then we asked her to go to the warehouse to get us something. Samiu got a kicking tee and I got mystic flyers but it turned out to be a waste of time. But I still got a new memory card for my phone. After that event I just stayed home and play games.

Tug of war champions

Tug of war is made up of 8 people. The teams have to wait for 5 seconds until they pull. Sadly Glen Innes lost. But there was still good sportsmanship from the other team.
Glen really wanted to win but sadly they didn’t. Looking at the team with their sad faces hurt me. But they made their family and us proud. We rewarded them with a party.

Mahe Drysdale

Mahe Drysdale just finished his event, the single sculls. He got a gold medal. When he won I got off my seat and screeched “GOD BLESS NEW ZEALAND!!!”.
Anyway Mahe Drysdale is 33 years old, 100kgs and 199 cm. He is an Olympic medalist from New Zealand.

He is probably the best rower that New Zealand has ever had. But it was a pretty good comeback from 2008 in Beijing.The thing that happened in Beijing was that he blacked out  and the doctor said that his heart rate was higher than a human.

I hope he will get another gold for New Zealand  in the next Olympics .

Swimming is an event when you race in water. There are all kinds of events to swim. There is 200m breaststroke, 200m freestyle, 200m butterfly and 200m backstroke. There is also 400 meters of those events.

My favorite event is 200m and 400m medley. A medley is event in swimming when you change styles every time you touch the wall. But in 400m you have to touch the wall two times before you change styles.

There is also a team event in swimming. It’s a relay. You have to have five people form the same country to enter it.
