It was the final of the ladies two hundred m sprint. 8 world class sprinters ready in the blocks. Complete silence until the gun went off.
BANG. Everyone catapulted their strides longer. Suddenly someone tripped over and grazed her knee. For the last hundred metres, everyone was sprinting like a cheetah running for prey. It came to the last bend then straight – the race was really on now.
The crowd was roaring as the race finished. the winner, however, couldn’t believe what she had done. A gold medal for Ireland. the Irish roared loudly.
