The Great Eithiopia

This is Eithiopia my group for our school Mini Olympics. This was a few days before the Mini Olympics. We were finding information about Eithiopia for inquiry. I present to you, a presentation of The Great Eithiopia. Am I the only one that thinks Eithiopia is great?

Ready Set FIGHT

How do they play the sport?  You need to touch your target in a certain place with a certain type of weapon.
What do you need to play this sport? You need a white suit, a mask and a weapon with a flat tip.
Five interesting Facts:

  • Fencing used to be a training exercise for the military until the 15th century.
  • Fencing was included for the first time in 1896 in Athens, and has remained on the Olympic programme since then.
  • Three types of weapons are used in the game and they are foil, epee and sabre.
  • A guy called Nedo Nadi is the best Italian fencer of all time, he is the only fencer to have won a gold medal in each of the three weapons at a single Olympic Games.

This is one of the sports I've been wanting to learn about, if you don't know what the sport is, it's FENCING! Fencing sounds like a sport that needs A LOT of concentration and training. I am very bad at concentrating so this sport might not be for me but for other people. I hope you have learnt how to play and what you need in order to participate in this sport.
