Liu Xiang

Before the race, I knew that I had to win for my country China. I thought in my head, “ If I don’t win this race my country will be disappointed”. “ Take your marks,  GO”!!!!! The athletes went off. My goal was to win a gold medal, and make it to the end, at least.

As I crashed out, I held onto my back leg. I absolutely felt embarrassed and disappointed. It was nerve racking. My achilles tendon hurt badly.
After the race I was so angry that I had lost. I wanted to leave. Hopping out of the stadium, I turned to come back in, because I knew I should finish. Hopping down the track, I was near the end. My two friends came and helped me the rest of the way.

The Real Cross Country

Walking down to the Reserve, I felt like I couldn’t do it. But I had to. We all hate Cross Country, but the Teachers love it, when we do it. Getting nervous, I lined up with all the other competitors. Go!!!!! Mr Burt exclaimed. I jogged at the start. Finally people were passing me. “ No”. I was coming first but then , one of the 9 year olds passed me.

Running through the bushes, it looked scary. There were muddy patches all around, and did I make myself muddy. My feet were aching. I could not feel my legs or arms. Cross Country is totally boring. Teachers these days.

I was nearly at the end. I could hear people cheering. Running around the corner, I almost slipped. There were Teachers telling us to turn left, turn right. It was so frustrating. “ Yay”, I made it. Finally it was finished. I came 9th.

Cross Country is harder than you think....... It was all with Perseverance.

Thank You Panasonic

Every year Panasonic runs a competition. During assembly a man named Paul came into our school hall, and talked to us. He came to our school to announce the winners. Guess what? Room 13 won the storyboard.

So Paul and Panasonic gave us the camera so we can film the storyboard we made. He also gave us a microphone and a memory card. Room 13 wants to say thank you Panasonic and Paul for giving us the camera and that!!!!!!!

Cross Country Training

As Room 13 walked towards the courts, I asked “What is going on”? Miss King exclaimed  “ We are doing Cross Country”. “ I don’t feel like doing cross country”, I said to myself.

Sitting down. Mr Marks said “Year 5 Girls”. Finally it was our turn. Getting ready to go, my heart was pounding. “GO”!!!!!!!! Mr Marks yelled.  

Running through the breeze, my heart was pounding 2 times worse than before. I said to my friend “ I feel really tired”. “But we haven’t even ran a lap”. Keis exclaimed. “ I know but”........ I gasped.

Running past Mr Sommerville, I stopped. He said “ Keep on running you can do it, don’t stop”. While running, I was struggling to breathe. “ Why oh why, do we have to do Cross Country? Teachers these days!”. I shouted.

Finally we are finished. I feel like I had done more than just a lap. I hope next time it rains, because running is TIRING!!!!!! My goal for Cross Country is to make the whole way and do my very best.
