Adams Wins Silver At Rio Games

adams 1Shot Put super star Valarie Adams has won silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Michelle Carter from USA won the final with a great 20.63m throw which was too good for Adams. Carter blew away the competition with her final throw after trailing Adams for the entire competition. Cooler conditions in Rio mean that throws were generally shorter than expected. Adams throw was further than her throw in London 2012 but this year it wasn't.

Pokemon Go Banned In Iran

pokemon go

Pokemon Go has been banned in Iran because of security concerns. Iran is the first country to issue a ban of Pokemon Go, a game that challenges players to visit real-world locations to catch cartoon monsters. The game uses a phone's GPS capability and camera to put people right in the game. Indonesia has banned police officers from playing the game while on duty, and in France a player was arrested last month after straying on a military base while trying to catch a Pokemon.

Running 100 Meters

Every morning, at 7:30 I eat my weet-bix and then go for a run for 30 minutes. Most people ask why do I run every day and I say I’m practicing for the Summer Olympic in Rio. My coach name is Glen Mills OD, he is a very good coach. On Saturday the opening ceremony began at 11:00pm, my coach and I went to watch it. My favourite part about my story is when I came first and I beat Usain Bolt.
