Sarah Walker

The London Olympics is finished and we have scored 13 medals all together. My favorite athlete would have to be Sarah Walker, the great BMX racer.

Sarah Walker was born in Whakatane, New Zealand, and lives in Kawerau, New Zealand. Walker started BMX in 1999 when she saw her brother, Matt, riding one day.

Seeing her racing and competing with other countries was very scary. Sitting on the chair cheering for  the great athlete,“GO, you can do it!”. She came second, a silver medal!  I saw her standing and looking so happy and ecstatic. Great job!

As well as competing in BMX events around the world, Walker has also been a sports ambassador for Beef + Lamb New Zealand since 2008.

So, hopefully, next time Sarah Walker can do even better and get a gold medal.

 I believe that hard work, will power will bring success in sports, how you will succeed this? is that you have the desire and strength, and also believing in yourself,  just like all the athletes who are competing in the london olympic are also Striving to Succeed.

I think that both natural ability and hard work are important to an athlete, Why? because then they know that if they achieve that hard work, well then they all know that they are definitely moving towards a gold medal. It may be hard work, but you always say to yourself never give up, keep trying.

 Most good athlete are born with speed, flexibility and coordination. You have may not noticed athletes who have been swimming since they were in kindergarten, other people who has been lifting weights since they were in primary. It really doesn't matter who you are just keep it up strive to succeed, Kia Kaha.
