I Want to be in the Olympics - Part 2
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     "These are really good," said Jody as she took the last bite of her brownie. She picked up her glass of milk and took a big gulp.
 
2     "Thank you," said Mom. "I thought you might enjoy them. Are you ready to get back to the sports?"
 
3     Jody got up from her seat. She picked up her glass and plate and put them in the sink. "I'm ready!"
 
4     "Then let's look at cross-country skiing," said Mom.
 
5     Jody and Mom walked back to the office. Mom sat down at the computer to get some more information.
 
6     "If I cross-country ski, do I have to go to the top of a mountain?" Jody asked.
 
7     "No, you stay on the ground," Mom said in a reassuring tone. "A few different events involve cross-country skiing. One of them is called the biathlon. In this event, you would wear Nordic skis and race along a course. Then you would shoot at targets. The sport combines skiing with marksmanship."
 
8     "I don't like guns," said Jody with a frown. "What other cross-country events are there?"
 
9     "The other events are just racing," said Mom. "You would ski along courses of different lengths."
 
10     "How far do I have to go?"
 
11     "The events are different. They range from 1.5 kilometers to 30 kilometers."
 
12     Jody counted on her fingers to figure out how long they races were. "The shortest race is almost two and one-half miles. Wow! That sounds hard!" said Jody with a pout. "No, I don't want to cross-country ski. What's next?"
 
13     "There are a couple of team sports," said Mom.
