Also it means doing your best and not giving up even if your chances look bad.
REALATIONAL We know many things about a topic, we areable to link these ideas together to gain new knowledge and to explore concepts.
Part/whole statementIf one part of the Olympic values was not included the Olympics would not be special or fun anymore.For example Joy of Effort;If competitors did not enjoy what they were doing they could become greedy and people will stop enjoying competing and watching the games.
EXTENDED ABSTRACT We know many things about a topic, we areable to link these ideas together to gain new knowledge and to explore concepts. We can think about these ideas in othercontexts and create new meanings, predict, generalise using what we know, supporting information and what we think.

Cheating at the OlympicsLots of people cheat at the Olympics usingdrugs and pills.

Cheating at the OlympicsPeople cheat at the Olympics so that they can win medals for their country. They might think that cheating is a good thing and no one will find out that they cheated. Most people cheat by taking drugs. The Belarus athlete tested positive for anabolic agent metenolone during in-competition testing on August 5 and 6 and has been disqualified from the final result. Side effects make them better at sports/events.For example; Nadzeya Ostapchuk took drugs so that she could beat Valarie Adams in the women’s shot put event. The side effects made her man like and more stronger to throw the shot put ball further. She has been caught and had to return her Gold medal which now goes to Valerie Adams from New Zealand.
The consequences of cheating are if you are taking drugs to cheat you might be allergic to the drugsthat you are taking and you might have an allergic reaction to them so you cant compete anyway letalone getting a medal. The other consequences arethat the people in the drug testing department will find out that you were taking drugs. The other consequence is that drugs can make you lookdifferent. You will also get banned from the sport you are playing for a period of time. Like the Belarusian shotputter. Cheating goes againstOlympic values and it reflects badly on a country.
Consequences of cheating cont.World wide cheating is not socially acceptable.At school sometimes students cheat in classtests but this is not good because when theyare older they will not know anything. We aretaught to do our best and to strive forexcellence, we must do this with hard work andpersistence.Cheating is not right and we should follow theGospel values and be good Christian rolemodels.
