One of my most inspiring teachers would have to be my tutor teacher Mr Lincoln. He is real cool and relaxed, well most of the time. He gives me advice and helps me out when i need it. A lot of the time in tutor i piss him off but he just deals with it and we still get along. He can take a joke in class which makes him a really good teacher to be around. Definitely one of the best.

Power walking

I don't think power walking (race walking) should be an Olympic sport as it may take stamina but not much skill. The race is 20km long so does take a lot effort to complete but its not much different then walking normally. It is not really a common sport among countries and is not a great sport to watch.

The Modern day Olympics have produced many great moments over the years so it's hard to pick "the greatest" moment. So I chose a moment in the 2000 Sydney Olympics where a country split in two walked together in the opening ceremony. North and South Korea still have not mended there relationship but for that Olympics they managed to put their differences aside and present a joint team to the world. This may not be the greatest moment in history but its shows how the Olympics bring every country together for a sporting event where peace is kept and friendships made.

Group story Part 3

 Now Part 3 of the crash

 Now with more details of the crash detective Jones needed to do some research on how a tractor could reverse on its own. Jones was back at the scene just looking around seeing if he could see anything of importance that might of been missed but as he was looking around he was interupted by an elderly man named Donald Griever who claimed he saw the whole crash. Detective Jones already knew what had happened from another witness but another point of view could help. So the man started talking about what he saw. He talked about the French man driving the tractor delivering fruit and the fench man helping unload the fruit, then the old man said the tractor just started rolling back with no one on it. He said It hit a man walking past then took out the 7 people that where in line to buy fruit. Finally it hit a building and a guy fell out of it. Donald told detective Jones basiclly the same story of the crash as he first witness except for one thing the first person to get taken out first was a guy walking past not the french man.
Jones was shocked as it once again seemed thats the french man was to blame for the incident. Detective Jones needed to make sure the second witness was correct about it not killing the French man. The mans name who got hit first was Alex Sanders an American on vacation, not a French fruit delivery man. So Donald was correct, but where was the French man?
