A Visit From Someone Who Knows...

Hope School had a visit from Phil Jones this week... Phil represented  New Zealand in the Basket Ball  team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics  and again at Athens in 2004. 
Room 3 and 4 spent some time asking him some questions about his time at the Olympic  Games... 

Did you know that you can eat all the MacDonalds you want if you are a competitor in the Games! 
But we are not so sure that would be the best food for an athlete...What do you think?

Phil showed us some of the gear he wore while playing basket ball at the Olympics and a few of us got to try on his shoes and kit. Wow they were size 13 shoes!!  Way too big for Room 3 children!
