First discussion topic - The Olympics.

Post by Admin on Tue Sep 13, 2016 1:09 pm

This is where you should reply with your thoughts and comments on the Olympics. You can talk about the French or the British performance, you can talk about the olympics as an ideal, or perhaps the balance or imbalance of sports in the olympics. Is there a sport you would add or remove? What about professional and amateur athletes? You can also talk about the paralympics and the effect that these events have on sports in France/UK.

Think and write, don't panic. Your English doesn't have to be perfect.

Dear professor ,

I'm going to talk to you about one of the most powerful athletes of olympics games.
Sir Bradley wiggins has made history during last olympics .
Bradley wiggins is a british professionnal road and track racing cycling.He is the only rider to have combined winning both World and Olympic championships on both the track and the road.
For information he won the tour de france and an olympics medal in 2012.
He wore the jersey of world champion of the time trial in 2015
On 7 June 2015 Wiggins broke the hour record, riding 54.526 km (33.881 mi)
but it is only a glimpse of victories of his career.
Bradley wiggins won no less than 18 Olympic medals during his career it made him a legend in the world and the fastest man in the world.
for me it is the most versatile cyclist of this generation.
it is also an example of a class on the bike and in life.
With his tattoos and his neatly trimmed beard it is the same British caricature, and people like it.

Hi John,

I'm not a great fan of the Olympics, I think it's just a buissness. The economic aspect is most important than the sport aspect for the organizer country.

Good evening everybody,

I'm going to talk about the moment that every athlete wants to achieve in his career : the Olympic Games.

In fact, I think the Olympic Games are the reward of hard work done over the years by a high-level sports. I guess all sports find magical the Olympic Games. On top of that there must be a lot of emotions running through sports such as joy, pride, but also fear and surprise.

Hi everybody,

I think the Olympics Games are symbols. They represent the peace in the world, and the economic aspect. There is also a parity that is a man-woman or valid and handicaped. Today Olympics Games are only show for many people but the games served for a lot of cause as fight against the racism or others. Today, they are there to show that we can all be equal economically and that we are every equals physically.

hi people,

sporting events such as the Olympics is only minor property that it allows many athletes to shine, its main purpose is for me to allow countries participating to show their power and to obtain economic fallen . This is also the reason other than that renowned fact that there are many pretender continually wanting them organized . To conclude the Olympics are mainly economic even.

Hi,

The olympics games is a success in the world because it's an event that brings people, a country with the sport but also economic aspect and media.
The media talk the olympics games and talk also the performance of athlete wich sometimes puch pressure on athletes.
This aspect is always present in Olympics games and is typic of Olympics games.

Hi John!

I think that the Olympic games are an opportunity to unify all the countries of the world through the spirit of sport without thinking of others more dramatic aspects like war or economic aspect of the countries. These Olympic Games also help to countries in difficulty developing value relative to the performance of their athlete like marathon with Ethiopia etc ...

First discussion topic - The Olympics.

Post by Juliette Bournas on Mon Sep 19, 2016 7:15 pm

Hello everybody,

I’m going to talk about the paralympics games, because for me it’s more important to find athletes who have more difficulty because they have a really different visions and humanistic sport ! It’s really amazing to see some athletes in their sport with their handicap.

Hi everybody,

The Olympic Games are a phenomenal international event which take place only once every four years.
This competition gathers the best athletes, and to count 204 participating delegations through 48 disciplines for a total of 306 tests during the Games of Rio de Janeiro this year.
We can underline that these Games were wons by the USA delegation, just in front of that of Great Britain and China, and that two legends known sport bowed out and participated in their last Games : the American swimmer Michael Phelps and the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.

Hi everybody,

I'm going to speak about the Olympic Games and especially on the decathlon event that impressed me. In fact, athletes must do several events in a few days. That's why athletes must have a great stamina. Furthermore a french, Kévin Mayer, finished second in this event and frightened several times the number one, Ashton Eaton.

Hi everbody,

Today in the world, i think we talk enough olympics games compared to the paralympics games. Indeed, paralympics games is more sensational for me, what i find admirable and amazing it is their courage to realized their passions.
The paralympics athletes deserve that we speak more of them.

Olympics games

Post by Marine.Renaud on Mon Sep 19, 2016 10:14 pm

Hello everybody olympics are the biggest competition in the cariere of a sportsman.
It is the purpose of every high-level sportsman to participate in Olympics games.
Thanks to paralympics even the people handicapped person can also realise their dreams.
In the preparation of olympics many sportsmen injure themselves because the preparation is very intense.
But the success and a gold medals are an enormous satisfaction in the life of a sportsman.

OG and surf

Post by Bohn Camille on Tue Sep 20, 2016 8:32 am

Hi buddies,

in this post i'm going to tell you, why surf really deserve to be in Tokyo's 2020 Olympic (in my opinion).
Indeed, surf was admitted by the last international Olympic committee.
In surf's world it's a huge victory, however a lot of people think it's a bad idea and keep saying that we should remove this sport from the olympics program.
To me it's really important that surfing is represented in the olympics. Indeed, there is only one sea gliding sport in the program : wind surfing while there is a lot of mountain gliding sports in the winter olympics games. So now there is two sea sports.
Furthermore, surfing deserves its place because it's a sport with many constraints, just like the others. Surfers needs to train hard and a lot to reach their best level and they have (most of them) a really healthy lifestyle. Like the others athletes.
And finally, to answer to those who say that we can't practice surf in country without direct access to the sea, i'll say that thanks to today's technologies , there is some
big waves pools all around the world which reproduce the same conditions that the ocean (almost) and they have to know that a pool like that is less expansive than a kayak pool.
