What does it take to be an Olympic athlete?
As part of our 'Competition' unit of work, we have been discussing the commitment involved by the athletes who aspire to be Olympians.
Here are a couple of stories, from two New Zealand 2016 Olympic athletes, outlining just a small piece of the journey that has seen them succeed to become Olympic athletes. Also included is an interview with Eliza McCartney, New Zealand's youngest female medal winner at an Olympic Games. She just can't seem to wipe the smile off of her face .... can't blame her really!
