Lisa Carrington's Gold Medal - By Levi

My favourite athlete is Lisa Carrington. She is an amazing athlete at Canoeing because she came first and won the gold medal this year at the 2012 Olympic Games. Lisa was born in 1989 and where she trains is at Eastern Bay Ohope. She came 1st K2 1000m A Final 2010 World Cup Series. Her favorite food is a slushy (Icy drink) and she lives in a town called Ohope, in New Zealand.

One of Lisa Carrington’s goal was to win a gold medal and she has done it. She competed in the Olympics and reached her goal. Here is a video link about Lisa. She is an amazing athlete to watch and man you had to see her because she was faster than the woman who came first in 2010! (I think).
Just like a tiger hunting for a deer that is totally focused is just like how Lisa got the gold medal. She is not going to keep her eyes off the prize. I’m sure she must have worked hard every morning of the week. I like her cool technique, how she grabs that oar with her long arms and scoops it in the deep water, to reach the finish line. Deep long breaths are helping her body to move even faster.

Make sure you practice because maybe you might be an athlete just like Lisa Carrington. I love canoeing about the same amount as Lisa. I can’t wait until the next Olympics open in Rio in 2016!
