                  Olympic Speakers
     
In September 2015, the 5,6,7 and 8 grades went to Humboldt for a presentation. But, this was not any ordinary speaker, they were Olympic speakers! We met Ashton Eaton  and his wife, Brianne Thiesen-Eaton. They both compete in track and field sports.Right now, Ashton Eaton is the best athlete in the world due to his win in the decathlon.
        
As a kid finding her way to the future, their speeches were incredible! They are very inspirational to kids, adults, and everyone! What they told us about was that we shouldn't be scared to try something new. To follow our dreams, no matter what anyone says.
         
Even if it was a short time meeting them, their words are still remembered in my heart. To others, it might seem nothing, but to me, it just turned my world upside down.
