Winter Olympics 2014

The Winter Olympics just started!!! We did pretty well in ice skating with White & Davis, some of our best ice skaters. We had some pretty good snowboarding from both the male and female sides. Just a few days ago, Shaun White was boarding. Everybody was expecting a lot from him, but he just fell straight on his bottom and came out in 4th place with medal, unfortunately.

Overall, I think the US is doing good this year in the Sochi Olympics, hosted by Russia. Hopefully, the US will pull off with the most gold medals in the end.

My Expository Writing

Describe why swimming is hard.

“I’m too tired I can’t go in anymore, I am too tired!” Swimming can be pretty chalenging.

For starters, some people are afraid of the water and you can’t blame them. The first time I saw a pool, I was pretty scared too. I thought I would drown. But when I jumped in, it felt like heaven beneath my feet. Ah! It fells so good. All in all, swimming is just plain hard.

In addition to that, swimming requires lots of endurance. Your body gets tired very quickly. For example, Olympic swimmers need to train hard so there endurance improves.

As long as you keep trying, hard things will be accomplished. Maybe I should start swimming with a buoy?
