The London Games 2012

The London games started with excitement, spectators cheering on the athletes in the parade as the crowd went wild. Spectators from all around the world hoping the athletes try their best. The Olympics is a time of opposite emotions as I show below.

As soon as the 100m finals came on, people were quiet and anxious. The gun went off, “Bang!” Usain Bolt had a good start, behind him was Yohan Blake. Bolt ran first with Blake placing second. Both were proud getting gold and silver for Jamaica.

Nick Willis, from New Zealand, had the second fastest heat time to qualify for the 1500m running race. He was super excited to be in the finals! In the final he was running well until the last 100m, finally coming 9th place out of 12 athletes. He was disappointed about it.

Valerie Adams is the best New Zealand women's Shot-Put ever and was defending her Olympic title in London. She lost to an athlete called Nadzeya Ostapchuk who took first place with 21.36m throw. Valerie Adams came second place with 20.70m and she was not happy winning a silver medal and losing her Olympic title. A Russian lady, Kolodko Evgeniia, coming in third place.

The Olympics can be happy and sad, ecstatic and disappointing. It's not about winning but striving to succeed!

Thanks Mr H for helping me edit this.
