David Mead

David Mead is a fantastic superstar and a great rugby league player. He plays Nrl for the Gold Coast Titans. The titans have a lot of speed on their side and David Mead is one of the fastest Nrl players to have ever played. He has exceptional speed and great catching and agility. David Mead is a real good player and has scored one of the trys of the year against the Cronulla Sharks when his teammate Scott Prince kicked for him and he caught the ball in one hand behind his back.

Usain Bolt

They have described Usain Bolt in a news article is a legend. Usain Bolt is a very fast olympic sprinter and he holds the world record for the 100m and 200m race. The thing that I really like about Usain Bolt is that he is an olympic champion that has successfully defended his title as the world’s fastest. He really is a legend in my eyes because for two olympics in a row he has proven that he is a glorious champ.

The whole world quotes”he is the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be”. As long as his record stays in tact he is the best there ever was so far but there is one person that does not agree. His name is Jacques Rogge. Jacques Rogge is the IOC president and thinks that Usain Bolt has’nt proven himself worthy of having the crown title a.k.a Legend. Some other people also do not agree that Usain Bolt has proven himself worthy. I think he has because he has beaten plenty of people and no one has overtaken his record.

In the london 2012 olympics he earned his Jamaican team the new world record at a demolishing time of 36.84. Also in the 2008 Olympics at China,Beijing he created two new world records. He beat Michael Johnson's time at the 200m and went on to be one of the olympic champions.

The Olympic Message

I think that the Olympic message that was quoted from Baron Pierre de Coubertin is very inspirational. He made a great point with his speech when he founded the Modern Olympics. The man’s very words were ”The most important thing about the olympic games is not to win, but to take part...just as the most important in life is not the triumph, but the struggle”. Those words are words of encouragement and I think that it is one of the most inspirational quotes I have ever heard in my life. Baron Pierre must have been really famous for being the founder of the modern olympics. I thank him for that.

What I think the olympic message means, is to not give up in any sport that you participate in. If you lose don’t hang your head down, but to be proud that you are the best in your country at that particular sport. They are great words of wisdom. Also I think that it means if you lose and you want to win next time, you need to work hard with training and if you don’t struggle while training then you’re not trying your hardest to accomplish your goal.

A person in the Olympics that I really look up to is Michael Phelps from the USA. He is a sensational swimmer and even if he is losing he never gives up and always puts up a fight until he touches the end of the pool. That is one of the reasons why I think he is the greatest Olympian ever. Michael Phelps always strives to do his best in anything that he competes in. Thats what I like about Phelps. He has sheer determination to win and he has a never die attitude. I really think that Michael Phelps follows the Olympic message.

Now I start to wonder how Baron Pierre de Coubert came up with the olympic message. I think he just came up with those words of wisdom to inspire and encourage other people if they lose or if they actually do triumph. Did you know that Baron Pierre de Coubertin came up with the 5 olympic rings. Baron Pierre is pretty successful to keep the modern olympics alive. He is a legend because billions of people watch the olympics and they always love when people break world records. Well I like it when people break world records.

There is another thing that I wonder about. That is why that very speech is the actual olympic message. What I think is that the olympic message is out there to support people to strive hard and train extremely hard to get something that you really desperately need. Those are really inspiring words. It tells people to never ever give up and keep striving to win and eventually you will win a gold medal.

Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps is one of the best swimmers ever. He is from the USA and he swam in the olympics and has won many gold medals. Some people say he is the best olympian ever, some people think otherwise. My opinion is he is the best swimmer ever in history. Michael Phelps this year is going pretty good so far. He has 5 olympic medals so far at this years Olympics. Two medals are gold, two medals are silver and one medal is bronze. He has made history by having the most olympics medals ever. When I swim I think of him because he is my idol and he pushes me to do harder. He is going great this year and I hope he can win more gold medals for his country because I think he deserves it.

His swimming technique is fabulous. Michael Phelps may not have the best start position in a race but through my experience of watching him he always catches up to his opponents like a lion stalking his prey. The reason I think he is a champion is because he has competed in four olympic games so far and in three of them he has won medals. Altogether he has 19 olympic medals. I really think that Michael Phelps has earned his reputation of being the best olympian ever because when he swims he has always dominated. But who knows someone else might beat his record.
