Description

A Complete History of the Olympic Games Guided Reading Scripts plus quizzes - set of 8 scripts, plus quizzes, for £20 - this is the original set of 6 from Ancient to 2004 plus two updates of 2008 and 2012.

Find out about the amazing stars of the Olympics, right back to Ancient times. Read about triumph and tragedy, elation and despair - it's all there in stories that range from totally unbelievable to just plain bizarre!

This collection, however, not only covers the stories of the stars but also the stories of nations - and their struggle on the world scene.  In the perfect world, sport would be totally separate from world events and divisions - but not so in real life. So we find many ‘stars' caught up in issues totally beyond their control - and in some cases, with tragic circumstances. But against all the odds, man proves himself again and again incredibly resilient, proudly living up to the motto of the Olympic Games : "Citius, Altius, Fortius" - Faster, Higher, Stronger.

Play 1:  The Olympics – Ancient and Modern

‘Ancient’:           Sostratos (wrestler/boxer)

                           Leonidas (runner)

                           Gymnast

‘Modern’:           Rower

                           Swimmer

                           Kallipateira (boxer’s mother)

Sample Text:

Leonidas:             First there was a one length of the stadium sprint. Then two, and then the long-distance race of 20 to 24 lengths. I was champion of all three races at 4 different Games, so I was something of a hero in my home city of Rhodes!

Gymnast:            I wonder what your people would have thought about a race of 26 miles and run by women!

Leonidas:             (in disbelief) Never26 miles? Run by women? You'll be telling me next the whole world can compete!

Rower:                 It can and does! Absolutely nobody barred!

Leonidas:             And what about the winners? No, don't tell me. You're going to tell me there was more than one winner to each race?!

Swimmer:           Well, in a way I suppose you're right! We do award  first, second and third places!

Kallipateira:        What? With small, medium and large wreaths?

Gymnast:            No! With gold, silver and bronze medals!
