Valerie Adams by Cameo

Cameo has written a paragraph about New Zealand Olympic athlete Valerie Adams. Listen as she shares with you some information.
This year in the London Olympics, Valerie Adams has done a remarkable performance. Her arch rival and tough contender Nadzeya Ostapchuk is from Belarus. She won the gold medal by a distance of 66cm more than Valerie Adams. Valerie Adams should be proud because she won our first silver medal and she had her heart set on gold.

Revival's Olympic Writing so far...

Here is Revival's paragraph about the Olympics so far. We are very proud of all the New Zealand athletes competing in London.

Do you know how great our Olympics team is doing? At the moment New Zealand have 3 gold and 4 bronze but no silver yet. Last week when we looked at the medal table New Zealand were 37th and now they are 14th. Our New Zealand Olympic team won gold in rowing and won bronze in the Equestrian. I am proud to be a New Zealander.
