Description

Olympic Games 2012 Assembly - on all 26 sports!

Cast of 30, approximate duration: 30 minutes. 

This school assembly on the 2012 Olympic Games covers all 26 sports, identifying the challenges facing all those taking part in the Games next year. And as usual, our narrator has more than enough challenges of his own - keeping order with this very 'mixed bunch'! Citius Altius and Fortius are all admirably demonstrated - even by those winning backwards!?! Read on to find out who these unlikely champions are!

Sample Text:

Narrator:             (Slumping into a chair) Maybe we could we have something just a little less energetic now, please?

Music 6

(Enter Child 16, 17, 18 and 19)

Child 16:               We’re here representing sports that happen in the water! That is, canoeing

Child 17:               Rowing!

Child 18:               Sailing!

Child 19:               And Aquatics!

Narrator:             Pardon?

Trev:                      He means, swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and water polo!

Narrator:             Hmm. Sounds kinda minty!

Trev:                      (Sighing) Oh dear!  What is it with you and your stomach? First the Dunkin Doughnuts, now Water polo!

Narrator:             Well I do feel I’m burning up rather a large number of calories  – just listening to what all these athletes have to do! Still, I guess sitting in a boat can’t be that hard!

Child 16:               (Exploding) Pardon? I’d like to see you taking on them rapids!

Narrator:             (Anxiously) Rapids? Whoever said anything about rapids? Not the white water variety I’m hoping?

Child 16:               Oh yes! You could find yourself in some very deep water!

Narrator:             Not if I have anything to do with it! I’ll be keeping my feet firmly on the ground!

Child 16:               Well, we do race our canoes on still water, too. But there’s nothing still about our bodies when we’re battling to get to that finishing line first!

Child 17:               And then there’s us rowers!  The only guys to cross the finishing line backwards!

Narrator:             Pardon?

Child 17:               Yes, winning backwards is our speciality! Eight of us pulling on those oars, splashing along backwards!

Narrator:             So how can you see where you’re going?

Child 17:               By listening to the cox – he or she acts as our eyes and tells us which way to go!

Narrator:             Quite a responsible job, I’m guessing! Keeping you on that river – and not in it!

Child 18:               Just as us guys don’t want to end up – in the sea! The water here’s a lot deeper and the conditions considerably more changeable! One minute nice ‘n’ calm; the next choppy and treacherous! You really have to be on your guard at all times! The sea can be an absolute beast!

Narrator:             (Shivering) Ooh! About time we switched to the swimmers! They’d be all right if they went overboard!

Child 19:               Well, it’s not usually that choppy in the swimming pool! But you certainly need a good set of lungs to keep you speeding through the water – doing freestyle or front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly

Trev:                      Over distances between fifty and fifteen hundred metres!

Child 19:               And then there’s synchronised swimming. You certainly need a good set of lungs for this as so much of it goes on underwater!

Narrator:             So not that easy to judge, I’m guessing?

Child 19:               Well, points are awarded for the choreography – that’s the dance element; the level of difficulty and the execution

Narrator:             (Looking worried) Execution, did you say?

Child 19:               That is, how it’s carried out!

Narrator:             I’m glad you added that! It had sounded so calm and peaceful up to that point! Perfect for the ladies!

Trev:                      Ah but you may be surprised to hear it was originally a sport for men!

Narrator:             (In disbelief) Never!

Trev:                      Ah indeed it was! Now, of course, it is for women only but not back in the 1800s.

Child 19:               Unlike water polo – originally a watered down version of rugby (gives a little snigger at his own joke)

Narrator:             Very funny!

Trev:                      But having to swim up to three miles in a match certainly isn’t! No one is allowed to touch the sides or bottom of the pool so they have to do a massive amount of eggbeating!

Narrator:             I beg your pardon!

Trev:                      That’s when they have to tread water, in case you’re wondering!

Narrator:             Well, I can’t say I’d ever made the link between ‘making an omelette’ and water sports before! My goodness, what a lot I’m learning today! Next!
