Countries that host the Olympics must show they have capacity space to hold the games and invest their own money into them. Through the influx of tourists the hosting country hope to gain more money during the Olympics. Ultimately the IOC decide which country gets to host them.

In 2012, the Olympics were held in London, United Kingdom. It was the third time London had hosted the games, the Olympics were hold there in 1908 and 1948. One of the upset games was in shot put, Valerie Adams claimed the gold medal only after it was found that her Belorussian opponent had tested positive for drugs.  

My mark out of 10 is 8 because I forgot the punctuation.

My Holiday

In the holidays I went to this arcade in botany it was called time zone I went with my cousin Josh and my sister Norah - Jade, At the arcade there were games and prizes, first we had to buy some tokens and then we had to go play some games to get our tickets after we played our games we earned tickets from the games we played. The games I played the most was the basketball hoop shot game it was my favourite game in the arcade.

When our tokens ran out we went to this machine which counts our tickets I had 36 my sister had 85 and my cousin had 125 he had the most, when we counted our tickets we went to the counter and showed the amount of tickets and told us to go and choose our prizes. My cousin came up with an idea he said that we should put our tickets me and my sister agreed, so altogether it was 246.

We all picked two things I choose two bracelets and one tattoo, my sister choose a slinky and three rings and Josh choose a tattoo and a hand clapper. It was the best part of my holiday I wish we could go to the movies next time.

After all that we went to eat at pakuranga mall and me and Josh wanted to eat butter chicken and my sister wanted to have burger king and so we ate everything up. So then we all went home and we all went to sleep we were all exhausted it was a big day.


The 2008 Olympics were held in Beijing china, It was the first time women could compete in boxing, women from Brunei, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were allowed to participate. This was considered a big deal because women in these countries were not even with men. The games in china were one of the most expensive Olympics in history.Image result for olympic rings

The Olympic History

The first Olympics was in the city of  Olympia, With the Olympics started  776 BC, BC stands for Before Christ. It was only for men and women weren't allowed to watch. There was only one event at the Olympics, called the 200 yard sprint. It was held every four years it was because they did the Olympics as honour of their god Zeus.

In 391 AD Rome invaded Greece. Two years latter the Olympic games were abolished in 336 AD. A Frenchman Pierre de Coubertin started the Modern Olympics in 1896.
