At the Olympics by Hannah Bradley, Langlee Primary

Have you ever wondered about being at the Olympics? I have and now I’m here in Rio. I’m Hannah Bradley and I’m a new Olympic swimmer…. The Olympic Village is huge and on my bed is: me, Katie and Daisy (my room mates). I am on Skype to my family. All I am thinking about is my big swim tomorrow. When I lay doen in my bed I imagine me winning gold and being on the podium. Music is all I can hear around me.

It’s 9:10am in Rio and I’m leaving the Village. WHAT…HELP! AMNESIA…I FEEL LIKE I’VE GOT AMNESIA! I can’t remember my PLAN for the BIGGEST SWIM OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!! So I talk it through with my coach amd I finally remember it. I was just a bit nervous. A bit I’M a lot nervous! Finally I can see the pool and the crowds. Swim suit on and now I’m on the starting block ready to dive in to the pool and swim. “Take your marks1”…. Wooo! There’s the whistle. GO GO GO!

8 lengths of the pool is what I do. 7 lengths later… I have just finished the 7th and now I’m on the 8th length, I’m WAY ahead until… I end up losing my pull and stop swimming! “Wait, come on Hannah. I know you’ve tired however you need to keep going.” I say to myself so I continue and… so nervous I think I’ve won but…

Straight to my coach in tears. Serially I can’t believe I was last! I see Amber Star about 20 meters (in the pool) from the finish line and then she has won first! Well I think she has it’s a photo finish… She has won! Despite me in tears I’m soooooo happy for her. She comes to me and I say “I’m going to give up swimming forever Amber.” She slaps my hand and says “Don’t give up on your dream silly!” so that I go to sleep thinking I can’t give up on the biggest dream of my life. So that’s my Olympic story. What’s yours?
