Triathlon Cameo Writing
Clap! Bang bang bang! was the sound of my feet interfering with the ground. I was right behind Tom when suddenly... Ahh! I yelled as I smacked my face into the ground. I picked myself up and raced to the gate. I was about 8 metres from my bike and I already had an adrenalin rush slithering through my veins. I was travelling at the speed of light, but there were still three kids in front of me. I kept on pumping it and taking my heart to the fullest. We drifted into the transition area and a kid pulled his brakes on too hard and slid out. I dumped my bike, took off my shoes and socks and my helmet and raced to the pool. I was over loaded with excitement. I jumped in and sped past a kid. Finn and Tom were still in front of me. I had done two laps and just when I was on my third, Tom hopped out and plunged to the finish line. Finn was on Tom's tail but Tom came first, Finn came second. I just hopped out of the pool and rushed to the finish. "Yeah!" I yelled. I came third! - By Cole.
I put my bike in the transition area and I walked over to the starting line. The man told us to wait. While I was waiting I did some stretches.
I took a deep breath and thought to myself, "I can do this."
"On Your Marks! Get set!"
BANG! I started sprinting. I turned the first corner in second place. "Am I going to stay in second," I thought myself. I zipped around the track like a race car.
I came to the transition area, put on my helmet and pushed my bike to the road. I hopped on and powered it to the police car. I slowly pulled on the brake and turned the corner then zoomed down the road like the Ducati Desmodici RR GP; the fastest motorbike in the world.
When I came to the entrance to the pool, I rushed to take my shirt off. I sprinted to the pool and fast foward walked around the pool. I jumped in and glided through the water like a fish.
I finished my laps in the pool and sprinted to the end of the race. I was so proud of myself. Over all I got 5th.
