Learn: 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?
I would chose my Dad because he has very strong legs and his very strong legs will help us go faster and faster with the help of myself as well. The Bikes you ride in the Paralympics and Olympics are really light. If we were to compete we would wear a lot of microfiber clothing which would make us feel light and it would be easier to pedal.
