Rio Olympics 2016

Hello LA19 – I wonder if you are enjoying watching and reading about the Rio Olympics as much as I am? So far I have seen our swimmers break a world record and win gold, the team equestrian events finish with bronze and unfortunately, I have yet to see any diving events. What have you enjoyed watching? Do you remember any facts about the Ancient Greek Olympic games that you can tell me about?

  1. Dear Mrs Davies,
    The Rio 2016 Olympic games has begun and we have been reading the Olympics. I have been watching women paired diving. One of the Ancient Greek rules for running races are you have to wear Armour
    from Jade.

    These are my favourite events Swimming, diving that I know you haven’t watched, Horse riding, Gymnastics, Running races, Hurdles, Tennis, Water polo, Rowing, Volley ball and Beach volley ball. Those were my favourite events. 🙂 😀

  5. Hello Mrs Davies
    I love watching the Olympic games and I love basketball when they shoot all those hoops – it’s really cool to watch

  6. You are right Mrs Daives, I saw the swimmers swimming, it was amazing and I saw 1500 meters running women! I also saw men 100 meter run with U Saint Bolt and gymnastics.

    I know in Greece they used hard armor to run in a running race, Chariot racing and Hop Hop jump.

  7. Mrs Davies, I know that there used to be chariot racing. I haven’t watched much but as far as I know, we’re in 10th position currently. I also know that in Greek times, you had to wear armor in all of the races/sprints. They also did hop hop jump instead of hop step jump. I’m quite entertained with U saint bolt and his pose when he had finished.LOL, it was so funny! from one of your new students, Jamie.
