This is a picture of Richie Patterson at my school doing his talking to the audience.

He is talking about his life story as a weightlifter and he's really fit and strong. He has won a gold medal and a silver medal. He's good and the best weightlifter that's all I say.


On Wednesday Richie Patterson came to my classroom and some of my old friends came from Sommerville School. After morning tea we went to the hall with 3 classrooms and we sat down on the chairs to listen to Richie.

First we watched the video of the Rio Olympic Games 2016 and Richie talked about weightlifting. When he first started weightlifting he was trying to lift this weight up but he was too scared to do it and he came 4th place. In 2014 he had to do the 3rd attempt for the weightlifting and he did lift up high because he was so brave.

At the end I gave Richie a pen for the iPad and I spoke really clearly.


Today Richie Patterson came to visit our school.

He is an Olympic Ambassador and a weight lifter.

He has been to the Olympic Games.

I liked listening to Richie Patterson.
