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?
