Activity 1: New Zealand will be sending approximately 76 athletes to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August to compete in the Summer Olympic Games. To learn more about these amazing athletes you can read their biographies on the New Zealand Olympic team website. Each athlete has their own page dedicated to them.
For this activity, please choose one of the athletes listed on the Rio Olympic Athletes page, read about them and then write a short description of them on your blog. In the blog please include their name, their sport, and three interesting facts about them.
The name of the athlete that I have chosen is Shakira Baker. She plays Rugby Sevens and is apart of the Black Ferns. She is originally from Greytown in Wairarapa. She studied Marine Biology when she was at University. She is related to Gillies Kaka who is in the New Zealand Sevens Team.
