Day 7 - Activity 1

Activity 1: At the first ever Paralympic Games in Rome, the athletes competed in eight sports. Cycling was one of them. For the cycling event, two people compete together as a team – one of the people has a disability and the other does not. Here is a picture of a para-cycling team from New Zealand:

At the moment the most famous para-cycling team in New Zealand is comprised of two female athletes – Emma Foy and Laura Thompson. Emma is blind but Laura is not. Together they work as an amazing team. Imagine that you were asked to compete in a tandem cycling event and you had to choose one person to compete with. Who would it be? On your blog, tell us who you would compete with and why. If it was me, I would choose my son, Aronui because he’s pretty fast and very funny. He would make me laugh as we biked along and would be very supportive and encouraging! I know that I could trust him to be a good teammate. Who would you choose?

To be honestly I would go with best friend, Newsam. The reason why I want to with Newsam is that shes very sporty and a fast cyclist. She could make us go to the finish line first and win. She is very kind and funny to go with. She could make us laugh while we a cycling.

  1. Hi Francesca,

    It sounds like Newsam would be a great partner for this activity. You will need someone who is funny and hardworking. You will also need to compete with someone who can communicate well. I've actually tried riding a tandem bike and it's pretty tricky! You have to make sure that you are completely balanced and cycling at the same time, otherwise, you risk falling down (literally)!

    Great job with this activity blog, Francesca. Keep up the great work :)

    Cheers, Rachel
