Vanessa Paralympics.

Yesterday on Monday Room fifteen went outside straight after lunch time. When we got there we played a sprinting game we had to sprint as fast as we can all the way to the end then we came back. Then our teacher Mr Marks told us to get an band. After that we had to put it around our waste and tack in our any right handed or left. When we all finish doing it Mr Marks said go. There I was sprinting my hardest and it felt weird without my left hand but it was fun.  

Me and my partner Annliz were so excited because we were winning all our games.  I was guessing what we were going to do next. I was giggling so much because of the first game we were playing because how Johnathan was running he and I was running like we were dancing. I saw my teacher laughing to.

There we were to the last event we were playing  game who can throw the farthest with one leg. Wow it was pretty hard it was my turn to throw I was scared. Mr Marks said “go” I took my time Then i throwed the ball and guess what i came FIRST PLACE.

Five A-side Football.

Every time in the Paralympics there is always exciting audience supporting their teams. In the Paralympics there is a sport called Five A-side Football. This sport has blind people but some of them are visually impaired. The only person that can see is the goalie. It is incredible how they could run fast and keep up with the ball.

200 Amputees Sprint Paralympics.

Did you know that some of the people that go to the Olympic games have chopped of legs or arms which are their limbs.  Those people that have chopped off limbs compete at the Paralympics. There is a sport that is the same as sprinting but they have amputated legs. When I first watched the video I saw that they were using this long metal legs which are called blades.
