His hands were locked around his opponent, while all you could see were veins popping from his arms. The opponent struggled, as his competition was tightly gripped upon him. Their facial expressions looked very awkward, as they both clenched their teeth. The opponent almost took down his partner but didn’t quite get there. Their muscles were aching as they tried to take each other down.

My Favourite Sport in the Olympics

The Olympics this year involves my favourite sport to watch. Gymnastics, because it is very fascinating to watch how they can get it all done, sometimes with out getting hurt or stumbling. My favourite team for that sport is, the 2008 summer Olympic games silver award winners Team USA. They made it into the finals and unfortunately did not get first place. They were amazing in the last Olympic games and are now aiming to come first place. I can't wait for the finals, I will be going for their team.


Brainstorm: accurate, aiming, bulls-eye, archery, focus, tension What focus this athlete has put into his sport. His mind is accurately focused on his aiming. His hands are firmly held onto the bow. A look of pure focus, swept across his face. The concentration he uses and you can see in his face, makes it look very obvious he will get it directly in the middle.

Olympic Opening "ASTONISHING"!!

"Wow"! Was all I could hear from the living room as I was brushing my teeth. After I had done so, I ran to the front as fast as I could. To my amazement, I had saw the amazing opening of the Olympics. Since my family does not have sky we were watching it on Prime television. I sat down and got comfortable, getting ready for the rest of the opening. After the commercial the Olympic rings attached together. It was so amazing and very complicated. I was trying to get it through my mind how on earth they could have pulled that off. But they did and it was awesome. The sparks of the rings actually felt like I was there. To be honest the only word running through my mind was WOW! The only word I could explain for the whole opening ceremony was "Astonishing". I seriously can't wait for the game to commence.

Olympic Pre-History

This year the Olympics will be held at London for the third time. The first in 1908 and the second in 1948. In 2008 the Olympic games were held at Beijing, where America had won the most gold medals in the history of the olympics. One of the athletes were Sean Johnson, a famous gymnast. Michael Fred Phelps were one of them as well, he is an American international swimmer who has, overall, won 16 olympic medals. In the Beijing Olympics he won 3 gold medals and is now looking at winning much more. In 1948 a dutch mother of two by the name Hollins Fanny Flankers Cooper, was the first and only woman in history to win 4 olympic gold medals in one whole game. In London they have been building one massive venue where the main events are going to be held. In the central of London the events of, volleyball, triathlon, archery and road cycling will be held there. The main venue where the sprints and relays will be held is a beauty. The stadium is gigantic. They have also been building beautiful new venues where the rest of the other events will be held. My personal favourite athlete is Valerie Adams. The sport that she plays is one of my favourite and is very hard. She is a very inspiring athlete that loves her sport very much and is committed to it. That is exactly what I love to see in my inspiring idols, and that is why she is one of them.

Maths Whizz

This is the first week of Term 3 and our class was assigned to 90 minutes on Maths Whizz. Each day I would at least spend 10 to 20 minutes on it. Maths Whizz is a really fun way of learning maths. It really helps you in your grades in school and in general. I love Maths Whizz because it helps me a lot. This week my usage went all the way up to 100 minutes. I am hoping to do the same next week.

At the beginning of the week we were assigned to pick one word from loads of them. Then we were to find the definition of it. After that we had to define the word in our own way. I chose the balance because it seemed really easy, but it

Goal Setting

This is my Goal for Term Three.

Brown Brother

This astonishing Prefect from Mt Roskill Grammar gave the most inspiring speech ever. It touched my heart and will sure touch others who is the same skin tone as he is. I also encourage low achiever students of pt england school to persevere and do your best in school and in life. Just because we are much different from other people doesn't mean we can stay like that. We can make a change to our lives and others by trying your best. I don't think we can do it I KNOW we can!! So let's persevere and do our best to be high achievers in life. Because this young fellow student Joshua Iosefa will sure get to places and if he can we can.

News Lately

The Whether recently is exetremly cold for me in particular. Even though I have heaps of layers of clothes on, it still seems to be cold. And also recently I could not beleive that Shane Cameron had knocked out Monte Barret. And I kind of thought he was the best. First David Tua knocked out Shane Cameron, then Monte Barret k.o Daved Tua then Shane k.o Monte Barret. Very VERY confusing! In news lately it has said that Sonny Bill Williams is the richest payed athlete around New Zealand and Austrailia. Queensland vs New South Whales. I kind of saw it coming, obviously QLD won and they did. 21 to 20 not by far though very close call. Anyway that raps up the Whether here and sports from Makerita signing off ..............  :)

Boring Boring Holidays!!!!

My Holidays are boring 'as usual'. I do nothing but sit and watch TV. Well recently something that was fun for me was meeting and playing with my new cousins from Australia. Mythera who was only 8 yrs old but is very mature and Anniville who was 11 yrs old like me. Anniville has the talent to dance like her idol Zendaya off Shake It Up. And Mythera is very intellegent for her age. My cousins are very unique in a way just like everyone on this earth. I think I am quite good at singing. I'm still working on it but I would say I am half way there. Anyway these school holidays are going no where. I need something to do and fast. This is exactly like all the other school holidays................ :(............. I am exetremely bored!!!
