Sports Information Report - The Olympics

THE OLYMPICS

The games we play today like soccer , dodgeball and those other sports we love to play and hear about every day on television and radios.Have you ever thought when sports ever started or even why it started.Well I’ll tell all the information you need to know about the beginning of sports.

The time sports and games ever began were in the prehistoric times, when all the people slept in caves wore animal clothing and struggled to hunt for food in their times,commonly known as cavemen.For the cavemen to survive out in the wild they would need to have lots of skills such as running, throwing,strength and been able to work as a team with others.These prehistoric people had to keep fit and strong so they would play games and tests like races to see who’s the fastest, who’s most accurate and the best at throwing spears over long distances.

In ancient Greece sport carnivals started to take place in 1700 BC which is close to 4000 years ago.Men only went to these kind of shows and competitions to show how strong and  good at sports they are.Since sports was a thing Athletics and Gymnastics became very popular.then the greeks  realised that  playing alot of sports help others to be fit and think clearly.So sporting champions were treted as heroes.Then the greeks began tournaments known as Olympics in 776 BC.The olympipcs started of with 5 main sports ,racing , leaping, javelin,discus and wrestling.Later on games like boxing and chariot were added in the olympic games.Because the olympics were so popular and important even the war would stop while it is in progress.Then the greeks built stadiums like the coloseumm for playing sports and the olympics.Before teen aged boys went to war they would play a game of basket ball in public bath rooms.

Hundreds of years ago the men who fought for their king,queen or country were called knights. Knights needed to have good fighting skills,so they practice their skills at the tournament.  Jousting the one  of the most popular and colourful event  these tournaments. To knights on horseback charged at each other to the ground with a long pole  ,or jousting stick . The knights tested other skills too such as sword fighting, archery, the use of special club called  a” mace”.

Ancient Vs Modern Olympic Games

Ancient Vs Modern Olympic Games

I am going to be talking about what is the difference between the ancient and modern times of the olympics.

In the ancient times it all started in 1895. In the ancient olympics they played  Archery,Badminton, Canoe Sprint, Diving, Handball and many more. In the ancient time they didn’t  have technology to mark up all of the scores and calculate all of the scores. In ancient times they  only allowed people of greek descents to participate  but only a few hundred were allowed to participate. That is quite different from the situation today.


In the modern time we still do the same games as the Ancient time, but it is different because now we use technology to calculate all of the points and other things too. The modern olympic games include the games of the olympiad ( summer games)  and the olympic winter games. The first edition of the modern games was first held in 1896 in Athens (Greece), and the first olympic winter games in 1924 in Chamonix (France). In every olympic games they include one more sport. This year they have included golf in the Rio Olympics 2016.


The ancient and modern games were both held every four years. They both had Boxing, Pentathlon and Wrestling.  In the moderns they also do discus, Javelin and many more. Also the winners always seem to get the highest honors. The thing that was good about both olympics is that  victory was greatly rewarded.  Many people all around the world came to watch and international sports competition always made money for people especially sports sponsorship.

In the modern olympics they did a lot of games especially the ancient olympics, they did Archery, Boxing, Wrestling and others. They both had their reward which was victory and they also had people come to the games from all over the world. However I would like to see the ancient games carry on without all of the new technology because it takes up all of our time.

Reading


This is my reading task, I had to figure out how the author persuade us, how the author inform us and how the author entertain us. After writing down how they persuades us ,inform and entertains us we have to write down our opinion and how it reflects to the story. For my opinion I wrote down: I think this story is a good story because it is easier to understand and other stories it is hard for me to understand.

Obama leads Clinton Choir Information Report

INFORMATION REPORT-World
Obama leads Clinton Choir

President Barack Obama painted a positive picture of America’s future and offered full support for Hillary Clinton’s bid to defeat Donald Trump in a speech that inspire the Democratic National convention at Philadelphia yesterday.  

He urged Democrats to enable Clinton to finish the job he started with his election nearly eight years ago in an  inspiring speech that capped a day when party leader took to the stage to contrast the party’s new standard- bearer with Trump, who they portrayed as a threat to United States Value  

Obama took aim at Donald Trump's campaign slogan and promise to make America great again “America is already great. America is already strong , and I promise you, our strength , our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump” Barack Obama says. Senior Democrats and former national security figures lined up earlier in the day to describe Trump as unable to steer America through the dangerous waters of today’s world.



This is what I did for my information report. We had to write about different articles on a news paper. I wrote about Obama leads Clinton Choir. This article is all about Obama trying to help Hillary Clinton Defeat Donald Trump. I hope you enjoy reading this information report.
