Best athletes in history
Men Among the sprinters, American Carl Lewis is undoubtedly the athele tha has marked the breadth od his archievements. With his nine Olympic titles (including four in long jump) and eight world championships, has maintained his dominance for almost two decades. Actually the best sprinter is Usain Bolt and in the resistant the best one actually is Kenenisa Bekele.
Women Today, women's athletics is mainly dominated by four ahtletes: Sweden's Carolina Fluft in the heptathlon who has not tasted defeatin a major championship, the Russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva following the footsteps of Sergei Budka. Moreover, the Ethiopian Tirunesh and Meseret Defar.
My favourite Athlete
My favourite ahtlete actually is Chema Martínez. He is one of the best long-distance runner in Spain ever. Inhis resumeincludethe twomedals wonin 10000meters at theEuropeanChampionships2002 (gold)and 2006 (silver) held inMunichand Gothenburgrespectively. I saw himrunthree times intheCrossof Italicain 2009, 2010and 2011.
Laura Real is actually my trainer. She knows everything about athletics and she was very good ahtlete. She works actually in the Tomares school of athletics and she love work with children.
1) How old were you when you started in athletism? I was 7 years
2) How many years did you do athletism? How many medals have you won? I did athletism 10 years and since I started junior I spend manu hours to train. I have 10 national medals and over 30 andalusian.
3) In how many teams did you compete? Did you compete with Spain? I have competed in6 different teams: PADEMTOMARES, SHERRY CHAPIN, SAN PABLO,SEVILLA ABIERTARIAFERROLANDCHAIRTOSSALALACANT. I made my debut with Spain once in junior and once with the absolute in official competition. Unofficial competitions in 5 more times.
4)Did you do any record? Which one? When? Currently I have the university record of Spain 4x100 ml and record of Seville in triple jumo. I've also had the andalusian record of 60 ml and 4x100 ml.
5) Why do you decide to give up your career? The professional athletics training needs many hours (I trained 5 hours per day) to be above. Tomares school grew and should spend more time so I should decided to continued traning or to followed by traninng school and I thought that training children was better and I believe that I came to my roof sport.
6)Which one was your best experience in athletics? There are many. My first medal in a national, it was my first time and I did not expect it, the spanish selection debur with absolute, when I did the minimun for the World Championship twice in the same day or when I was second in an absolute competition.
7)Did you compete out of Spain? No, I have not had a chance, every time I have rated to some international championship finally I couldn't go.
8)Which one was your model of athletics? Why? Always I wanted to run as a referece was SandranMyers (she has a record of Spain) and international Orina Privalova and Merlene Ottey. I had the experience to run with all of them in the same competition.
I think she was a very complete ahtlete and she learned a lot in her ahtletic career.
In my English project we did in groups a typical food of a country and record it.
We did Chicken Curry typical of Thailand. First of all we bought the necessary ingredients, then we went to my house and we started cooking. We recorded while we were cooking, because then we hace to make a video to show to the class.
The in class, we did a power point to explain why we chose this country and the fact files of it. We organise the time and we spoke in public. It was very good for us because we improve how to work in groups and spoke in public.
I think it was a very good experience because we improve our English when we had to decide something in group and I enjoy it a lot doing the Chicken Curry.
The answer is yes. An example is the violence at football matches. You are watching a football match when suddenly a bottle or something hits you in the head and it could be very dangerous and the hooligans are always throwing things to the football players and it could be very dangerous too because they may be injured or have serious injuries. Another example is the football players are always insulting and the little children learn to do this and then in their footballl matches they beat and insult, so when they grow they do the same things that they saw at the football matches. I think that we can solve it little by little if we dopn't do that thing so the children in the future won't do this when they grow.
Sadako Sassaki fue una niña que vivió en Hiroshima (Japón) y que con tan sólo 2 años sobrevivió a la bomba atómica lanzada por EEUU en esa misma ciudad. Ella era atleta y, 9 años después de la explosión mientras corría una maratón se sintió mal y se mareó. Le diagnosticaron leucemia, una enfermedad de la sangre, también conocida como "enfermedad de la bomba A". Una amiga suya le visitó al hospital y le recordó una vieja tradición que una persona construyó mil grullas de papel y los dioses le concedieron un deseo y le dio una grulla echa de papel dorado. Sadako fue construyendo grullas con todo lo que encontraba en el hospital, hasta llegar a 644 grullas, pero su enfermedad empeoró hasta morir el 25 de octubre de 1955. Sus compañeros de escuela completaron las 346 grullas restantes. En 1958 se construyó un monumento en su honor en el que salía Sadako sujetando una grulla y con un lema que pone:«Este es nuestro grito, esta es nuestra plegaria: paz en el mundo»
