Shot Put Instructions

Hello there, if you’re reading this that means you want to get better at Shot-Put! Shot Put is a Sport of strength,agility and just....strength!

One type of shot put style is the glide,I’m telling you this because it is only done for older kids, amatuers and professional female shot-putters.

In the Olympics, the female shot putters technique is the glide and the glide only.The best world record is 21.36 made by Nadzeya Ostapchuk from Belarus. But she had taken drugs therefore she doesn’t have the world record,It’s Valerie Adams from NEW ZEALAND!!!!!

I will tell you about the things in Shot Put. There is a round circle where you stand in and where you make your put from. There is also some powder that grips onto your shot.

Now i’m going to tell you about some of the rules in shot put. First you HAVE to stand in the circle and not leave until the shot has landed.So you cannot just leave in the middle of the throw you have to stay until it has landed...

Some Shot-Put tips I’m giving you is, that you need a good diet,a very toned upper body and practise,practise,practise.What I would do to help me get all those tips is to watch your health,workout most of the day,and practise!!!

The Olympic Creed

               This is the official Olympic creed (Bottom) and I have drawn the Olympic a Flag (Top)

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well."

My Early Christmas Present

   My Early Christmas Pressie

                        This Weekend was like no other weekend before, as I got...

“Aahh” I sighed as I woke up to the sound of my mother screaming at the T.V,because she was watching Eric Murray and Hamish Bond,in the lead by about two lengths of their rowing boats. Of course they won another Gold for New Zealand. Once I looked at my Dad he was watching an eye at the Warehouse online for Pool ,and he was looking at a particular table that was $400.

Then my Dad said “Okay do you want the pool table as an early Christmas present...” “yeah yeah” my sister and I agreed. So my Dad brother and I went to buy a pool table. When we got there my Dad had gotten a very polite man to help us roll the table to our van. As soon as we got home my Dad put together the pool table.

It took about 2-3 hours to put together,and finally it was accomplished and now it was time to whip butt. I had some skill because I played at my mums work because they have a snooker table. My first battle was my sister who I bet and I wiped my brother by about 5 balls to go. But my dad was too good and he bet me by 2 balls to go...

My player I would go for in a competition would be Chao Fong Pang. Because he is the World’s best 8 Ball Pool player...

Medley Relay Event

As far as we know in the olympics,the medley relay swimming event is one of the most popular spectator sports. It involves four types of swimming strokes in one order. Each stroke is carried on by a different team member.

The aim of the event is to backstroke two 50 meter lanes and when they get to the first 50 meters they flip and kick off the wall.Then when they finish they touch the other end with their hand and then the other teammate dives in and do the 100 meters and then the routine goes on and on until you and your team finish

...The clothing that is needed in the medley relay competition is a swimsuit, jons or anything that cover their parts. What equipment they use is lane ropes to keep the swimmers,not getting into the other swimmers way. They swim in a 50 m pool.

… The skills that you need to compete is the right movements, great agility,strength and fast and powerful kicks.That will surely make you an olympic athlete...

The medley swimming event is very cool to watch on t.v but would be way better in real life.One of the athletes that I would like to be is Michael Phelps
