My hockey team was losing 2-0 and my coach put me in the game. I felt energized as I scored a goal! My team won! I was really proud. Good game everyone!
What makes this a true Olympic moment, Quinn, is that even though YOU scored the goal, it's clear to me in your choice of words that you see how your contribution brought the whole team to the win. Bringing everyone with you to a shared success is golden. Congratulations!
My Olympic Moment was when I finished the Girls on the Run race. I felt very proud and satisfied with the hard work that was already done in preparation of this race. The medal that was awarded saved the memory of this race. I was up from five to ten in the morning, but it was worth it. I had a lot of fun at the race. I bought special souvenirs there, and ran with my friends. All of the Girls in the Girls on the Run team of my school were there, along with a bunch of other teams from different schools. It was held downtown, so we had to take a bus to get there. It happened sometime in October or November. This moment is special to me because a lot of work, time, and money was put into this. I had so much fun, and it was a moment to be remembered.
Emily, Running with Girls on the Run was indeed a very special day! As your coach, I was so proud to see how much you (and the rest of our team accomplished) during our time together. It made me smile all over again to see you remember that day with such detail. Thanks for sharing your moment! -Miss Beatrice
My Olympic moment was when I was playing tennis and I was down 3-5 then I won by 7-5. This is my Olympic moment because I kept playing and won in the end. Also it was the first tournament I played. I felt proud about me winning when i was losing 3-5. I kept playing and i didn’t care if I lost and kept ripping the ball. In the end I lost the tournament but I felt proud of my first match. My family was proud of me. This was 3 years ago when I first started playing tournaments. That is my Olympic moment.
My Olympic Moment was when I just finished my 5,000(estimated) piece Lego city in my room out of spare Lego pieces. This happened two days ago. When I completed it, I looked at the city, and I was proud that I built that city with only 5000 pieces. It’s so impressive This is my Olympic moment because I used almost every single one of my Lego pieces. I was surprised that I did this, all by myself. If I could keep building, I would. That's my Olympic Moment.
5000 pieces is unbelievable! How long did it take?
My Olympic Moment was when I completed the Move for the Kids walk/run. It was a walk raising money for the local children’s hospital, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. My sister, who had used the hospital many times, had a team, Pillow Fight Against Cancer, or, for that walk, Pillow Fight for Children’s. I was running with some of my friends. I only stopped to walk a little bit, and I never slowed down that much. After the walk, I was really proud. Partly because of my perseverance to run, and partly because I had helped raise a lot money for the hospital. The walk took place at Soldier Field. It was five kilometers, or three miles. It was really fun. Everyone on my sister’s team had a great time. I had been nervous at first, because I didn't know if that day would have nice weather, and I didn't know if I would run that well. Before the run, I had trained for a really long time. All my hard work paid off. It was one of the best days of my life. That was my Olympic Moment.
My Olympic Moment was when I jumped rope 50 times. This is amazing to me because I never jumped rope 50 times. My minimum was 10 times so I was very proud of my self. My sister Vianey was cheering me on. This took place in my backyard against Angel. My age was 7 years old and after I won I was so happy that I achieved this. So that is why this was so special to me this was my Olympic moment.
I was watching kids jumping rope at Fitness Night and couldn't believe how well they could do it. You were only 7? Wow!
My Olympic moment was when I finally reached level 8 at my swimming class. I was taking the test, I did a 50 freestyle ( back and forth ), Backstroke back, breast kick half way and freestyle back. I was so happy that I finally reached level 8! I swim at Niles North High School. I used to swim at Niles West High School but now I swim and Niles North. I was 9 years old during the year of 2014. I swim on Saturdays. It was very exciting!
My Olympic moment was when I was able to play the flute better than I started. This was my moment because when I first started, I was horrible, and I thought I was going to quit, but when I stuck with it, I realized that this was a good instrument for me. This was good for me because I had been waiting all my life to do this, and I nearly quit. Another reason this was good for me, because it helped me build more self esteem.This happened,in January 2014. This happened to me when I was practicing Mary had a little lamb , on my flute, when I realized, that I wasn't struggling much on the notes.And that is my Olympic moment.
I felt the same way when I first started flute! It took me months just to get a sound out, but I kept working and now I am 1st chair in 5th grade band! Keep working, and good luck!
My Olympic moment was when I won a medal.That was when I went for a test in my class were I learn to defend my self. Where I use to go they just gave us medal not because we earned them .They gave them because they wanted to see us happy. When I got this medal I felt like I can do anything.That medal was special to me because I actually deserved that medal.I didn't care that it was brown.
My Olympic moment was when I won my Girls on the Run race. My race was downtown Chicago. I was 10 years old. The reason it was special to me is because I have never won a race. Another reason is that I got a medal. One thing that was hard was that I had to run and not stop. That was my Olympic moment.
My Olympic moment was when I went to a Taekwondo championship for HMAA with sparring, and kicking. First me, Angale, Raymond, and Jaden, went to stretch. Next we found out our kicking technique, mine was jump front kick, roundhouse kick, then jumping turning back kick. I got gold, Jaden, and Ramond tied for silver, and Jaden got bronze. But the hardest part was when I did the jumping turning back kick. It was the hardest kick because you have to hook your leg, and spin all while jumping, my master was happy I finally learned the kick.
My Olympic moment was when I was trying to draw a picture using a different style than how I usually draw and it was new and different for me. I felt proud of finishing it because when I showed it to my brother, he commented on how it looked good and that I should do more things like that. When I’m drawing, I usually stick to one style but trying a new one made me feel like I have just accomplished another thing in my life. Drawing new styles were hard because even when I’m drawing like how I usually do, getting things symmetrical is hard to do for me. I managed to draw things as close to perfect as possible by knowing that this was only the beginning and that I know, that in a few years, my art will be better than how it is now.
Karen, it's so great that you have connected your art to the Olympics! You're correct that the more you practice new styles, the better you will become. Thanks for sharing your moment! Miss Beatrice
My Olympic moment was the time I got my first medal. In 3rd grade, I had to build a car to race down the hallway. I was really nervous, and at the same time, I was excited. Some cars looked like they would be better than mine. When the first cars went, and got good scores, I thought I was going to lose. When half the cars finished, and the first day of racing was over, I was sure I’d do terrible. When it was my turn, all I could do was hope I would do good. After the race, when I heard that I won, I almost screamed with excitement. I had the school record of 71.
The unexpected wins are always fun!
My Olympic moment was when I learned and mastered how to ride a unicycle. Before I learned to ride, I practiced every day at circus camp.People tried to help me, but I just got it. People said keep your shoulders up, don’t jump off because you are scared of falling, look straight ahead. Finally I road my unicycle across the entire gym! So exciting! After that I mostly could ride across the entire gym, like 5 out of 6. At the end of circus camp I could ride around the gym 36 times, my all time highscore!
My Olympic moment was when I made the biggest snowman with my sister,brother and cousin’s because I never ever made a snowman so big and huge. It was in front of my house and it happened when it was snowing a lot.I was 7 years old. At first the snowman fall down because my little brother kicked it and it fall. Everyone was mad at him that we all had to make it again but the second time we made it. It was bigger than the first snowman we all made. This all happened in the year of 2013. I made it on Saturday. We were so excited that we finish the snowman.
My olympic moment was when I defeated Deathstroke from the game: Batman Arkham Origins. This moment was special to me because it took me two weeks to defeat Deathstroke! This olympic moment happened in my house on January 30th. I defeated Deathstroke on the Xbox 360. The objective of the part of the game was to knock out Deathstroke so I did just that.
My Olympic moment was my first 5k race, in 3rd grade. I was in Girls on the Run, and we had been training for months and months in preparation for our race in the city. On the big day, I got up at 5:25 and got on a bus to Soldier Field, where the race was. I had been feeling confident and determined, but I soon realized that there was a new flaw in my plan: it was 98 degrees, and the race was OUTSIDE! This new development made me a little nervous, but my goal remained the same: to run the entire time, without stopping once. My mom and I were running the race together. Each of us carried only a small water bottle and lots of confidence and pride. We eagerly approached the starting line, and just like that, the race began.
We quickly found a good, steady pace. Thoughts and emotions flowed through my head, and behind my uncertainty was simply pride, and a desire to do my very best. My nervousness soon vanished, leaving me with only a feeling of pure peace. I was so happy! This was finally my moment!
Two miles later, though, I was feeling less sure of myself. So far I had not stopped once, but every step was getting harder and harder. My water bottle was running out, and sweat dripped down my face. I was so tired, and SO very hot! I kept going, trying to keep a steady pace, and I made myself believe that I could finish this race.
Not long after, I saw a banner in the distance. The finish line! My heart pounded with excitement. Right then, I decided to finish strong. I took a deep breath and began to sprint.
My feet pounded the hot pavement, matching the beat of my heart. I felt like I was flying. I put on an extra burst of speed and surged across the finish line!
I had done it! I had really done it! I had run the whole way and never stopped once! I wore my medal proudly, and my heart burst with joy. I knew, deep down, that this was my Olympic moment.
My olympic moment was when I won a writing contest. This was a contest for students of the north shore in it's entirety! This contest was a contest for a scary story and I wrote a story about my grandmother, Carolyn, staying at a haunted hotel in Atlanta. When my teacher, Mrs Reid started announcing it to the class, she said: "Well, class, this has never happened to me in all my years of teaching…" and I didn't know what on Earth she was talking about and what she was going to say. But, when I found out, I was ecstatic!! That was my olympic moment.
That was SO cool! I won 2nd place and you won 3rd!!!! Didn't you love finding out that we and both won? I couldn't believe the prize, either- a $10 gift certificate for anywhere in Downtown Evanston, and a whole book of coupons for the businesses there! Winning that contest was so special!!
P.S. I LOVED your story!!!
