Every 4 years we have the Olympics, and there are many different athletes that are competing from other countries in London this year.
Valerie Adams is a shot put athlete .She is a number 1 shot putter because she always gets gold ever since she was fourteen. Adams trains so hard and put in a lot of pressure into her body.
New Zealand is competing in the London Olympics. They have put in a lot of effort and made everyone in NZ proud because they have got 6 golds, 2 silver and 5 bronze medals. How cool is that?
Gold is what everyone wants because it shows they are the number one CHAMPIONS. Silver is fantastic because you won a medal and you came second. Bronze is alright because you still won a medal, and made your country so happy.
Hopefully you can be an athlete like Valerie Adams because she is a CHAMPION!
