Activity 2- Day 5 Weekly Activities...(Holiday Blogging)

Learn: In 1936, a 13 year old girl named Marjorie Gestring became the youngest person to ever win an Olympic gold medal. She won the gold medal in the springboard diving competition. Imagine that you were alive in 1936 and you had the chance to interview her. On your blog, post five questions that you would like to ask the Olympic champion (if you had the chance to meet her!).

My Five Questions:

1. How much preparation did it take to win the Gold Medal?
2. Being the youngest Olympian ever, were you pressured or excited going into the games?

4. Knowing that you were up against athletes older than you and possibly idols of yourself, how did you feel when you first competed against them... did you feel nervous or did you feel excited?
5. Did your parents stay with you the whole Olympic Games or did you have a supervisor to supervise you?


  1. Hi Pat,

    I enjoyed reading through your list of questions for Marjorie. I also liked the picture that you posted of her on the site. I haven't ever seen that one before. She looks like she is all ready to compete in her togs and swim cap. Speaking of swimming, do you enjoy going for a swim? I personally love it! I used to work as a lifeguard for years in Canada before moving to New Zealand six years ago. I haven't swum much since moving here but I plan to get back into it. It can be such a nice way to get exercise and have fun doing it!

    keep up the great work!

    Cheers, Rachel:)

  2. Thanks, I enjoy swimming as well but in particular I like jumping off diving boards doing flips, bombs etc.
