The Olympics is about countries from all over the world that participate in different kinds of sports.
When the Evers-Swindell twins were having their final rowing match I got all excited. The Evers-Swindell twins have a special boat called a 2 sculled boat. Wee the Evers-Swindell twins were nearly at the finish and they had a photo finish with Germany.
When running was on I watched Nick willis get a bronze medal for running 1500 meters. Then I watched the mens 1000 meters. A Jamaican man called Usain Bolt broke a record. His record was 19.58 seconds.
Just last week I watched the shot put final for the women. Valerie Vili represented New Zealand for the women’s shot put. When she threw the shot put she got 22.10 metres and won gold.
Hayden Roulston is a cyclist. He used a special bike called a super bike. After his cycling match he got a silver medal in the velodrome.
I think new Zealand should be proud of their gold, silver and bronze medals.
