Olympic Flame

The Olympic Flame is ignited by the sun in Olympia, Greece. The Olympic Flame must keep on burning until the closing of the ancient Olympic games.

The tradition still continues to these days. The Olympic Flame is lit by a curved mirror that reflects the heat of the sun onto the Olympic Flame. It is performed by a woman dressed in ancient style robes.
The lighting of the flame is a very important event at the Olympic stadium. It keeps alight until the games are concluded.

Age: 25 and a 1/2

Facts: Oscar has participated in many events of the Olympic games. His talent is to run. He is representing his country, South Africa in the Paralympic events. He is competing in the Paralympics because the Paralympics is only for disabled people. Once, Oscar competed in the abled athlete races. Oscar is known as the “Blade Runner”. If Oscar was in the Olympics than I think that he will have an advantage because he has fake legs that look like robot legs.

The Olympic spirit.

Olympism is a life philosophy which draws together sport, culture and education. The Olympic movement was originally promoted by Coubertin. Excellence, friendship and respect is a essential part of the Olympic movement.

The Olympic ideal refers to not only winning, but also about giving your personal best on
the field and in daily life. The values of excellence are participating, giving one’s best and striving to complete your goals.

This term I think we a really going to find out more about the Olympics because this term our topic is Go for gold. I really hope that I could learn about my favourite sports, boxing and running. We might even be able to find out more about famous olympians like Peter Snell, Jesse Owens and also Usain Bolt.

I am really looking forward to learn about the olympics. I wonder what’s still going to come this term. Maybe we would get a chance to try out and experience more things about the Olympics.
