Last week Aoraki were given a article to read, it was about the German twins ( Anna & Lisa Hahner) competing in the Rio Olympic women's marathon. After our group had read the article we then had to follow the instructions on our team 5 learning site.

Hello my name is Usain Bolt my full name is Usain St Leo Bolt, I was born in a small town called Sherwood Content in Jamaica. If you didn’t already know I am titled the fastest human ever timed, I am also the first man to hold 2 world records which were for the 100 metre sprints and 200 metre sprints. This year I am going to be competing in the 2016 Rio olympic games, This will be my 4th time competing in the games, I first started competing in 2004 which was 12 years ago.
“It was the day of finals and I was feeling very nervous to compete against some very powerful sprinters” Bolt said.
The sprinters lineup nervously as they prepare for the finals which was the 400 metre sprints. Legs and arms shiver as they hear the race starter yell out “On your marks”! The stadium went quiet and off went a sound Bang! A loud shooting sound comes from the race starter's pistol. A speed of light dashes across the tracks as the different coloured countries sprint towards the finish line.
Sweat runs down their face as their arms push through the air, the crowd cheered as every country went past, their legs strained as they ran through their lanes. It was about 300 metres into the race and Usain Bolt (aka the fastest human ever timed) speeds right in front of the race and was now in lead, it was now impossible to beat him as he had already ran half of the 100 metres left. The finish line was a bright white painted square but you did not finish the race until you have passed the yellow line on the white square.
The crowd screamed and cheered as Usain Bolt crossed the yellow line, he reached for his water bottle and squirted it on his face. Along came all the other sprinters, they were all so proud of themselves for being able to finish the race.
It was now time for the medals,in the middle of the stadium there were three steps which had numbers 1, 2 and 3 on them. The winners took their place and collected their medals.
