Vampire Academy

Over the past few weeks I have been reading a novel called, 'Vampire Academy'. It is the first book of a series of six. The book is about a vampire princess called Lissa and her best friend, Rose who is also her guardian. Lissa needs a guardian because she needs to be protected by the most dangerous race of vampires called 'Strigoi', these vampires almost never die and they feed off blood from moroi vampires like Lissa.

Lissa and Rose ran away from the Vladimir Academy two years ago, but they are caught and dragged back. They then have to continue with their studies, Lissa Moroi social science and Rose guardian training. They have to complete their senior year with the rest of their classmates so they can be reunited again. But events make it hard.. threats of the Striogi breaking into the school and relationships getting in the way.

Olympic Opinions (:

The olympics are a world wide event which are held every four years. Athletes from countries all around the world come to one city in the world and compete in their prefered sport to try and gain medals for their countries. There are over 25 sports in the olympics and they range all the way from swimming and diving, to equestrian and syncrhonised swimming. But cheerleading is not one.

I think cheerleading should be included in the olympic games because it involves a high amount of physical activity such as: tumbling, jumping, tossing people in the air and dancing. It also involves alot of teamwork. Every team or athlete that goes to the olympics spends hours training to get ready to compete, cheerleading is exactly the same.. you train hard so you can go out and compete well. Some people think that cheerleading can't be considered an olympic sport because not many countries know about it yet, and America are far more developed in the sport than any other country.. but if not many other countries know about it then how is there such thing as the 'Cheerleading Worlds'?
The cheerleading worlds are held every April in a different state of America each year countries from all around the world enter multiple cheerleading teams from their country to compete.

Olympic Moments

The best moment in olympic history was when Kerri Strug helped the American Womens Artistic Gymnastics team win gold at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. I chose Kerri Strug because the only way that the USA team was going to win the Artistic Gymnastics Team event was if Kerri got a score of at least 9.493 on vault. After Kerri completed her first vault she fell and hurt her ankle badly, she still completed her 2nd vault but instead of landing on two feet she landed on one and got a score of, 9.712.
