Have to wait 4 years to live it.

In groups of  6 we all have made a performance, showing you the sports we have selected, and people who is going to represent spain in the olympics.

Our group have voleyball, hockey, triathlon, pentathon and weightlifting.

Hockey (Male and Female National team).
It is a team sport in which a team attempts to score goals by hitting a ball using sticks. It comes from 200B.C in Ancient Greece where they played it with a horn.

Hockey was included as an Olympic sport at 1908 and in 1924 it was created the International Federation of Hockey. India and Pakistan won all the Olympic Games since 1928 to 1968.

There are two hockey disciplines: field hockey and Ice hockey, which is a Winter Olympic sport.

Weightlifting (
Lidia Valentin, Andres Mata)
Weightlifting generally refers to activities in which people lift weights, either for the purpose of competition, health, fitness or muscle development.

A version of this sport, Olympic weightlifting, is a regular part of the summer Olympic Games.

Weightlifting is probably one of the oldest sports. We can place its origins around 3600 BC in China.

It was part of the sports of the Athens' Olympic Games in 1896 and in Saint Louis in 1904, but disappeared in 1908. In 1920 weightlifting rejoined into the Olympics. The female category did not enter the Olympic program until the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

There are different competences.

It's to lift the barbell from the floor to above the head with a full extension of the arms in a squat, all in one movement.

Two times

This exercise is to raise the bar from floor to shoulders with a squat.

Modern pentathlon (
Jaime Lopez)
Is a sports contest that includes five events: pistol shooting, épée fencing, 200 m freestyle swimming, show jumping, and a 3 km cross-country run.

Except for the fencing competition, athletes do not directly compete against one another in the five events. Instead, a better absolute performance results in a higher points score; points for each event are combined to give the overall total scores. This is similar to the procedure for the decathlon in track and field athletics. However, an innovation was introduced to make the finale of the pentathlon more exciting. The last event is the cross-country run. Competitors are ranked according to their score from the first four disciplines and given different start times, with the leader going first, and other starts staggered by points differential such that the first person to cross the finish line will be the overall points leader and win the pentathlon.

The fencing discipline uses the épée. The competition is a round-robin, meaning each competitor will face all the other competitors once. Each match lasts up to one minute; the first fencer to score a hit wins instantly. If neither scores within one minute, both lose the match.

The swimming discipline is a 200 m freestyle race. Until the 2000 Olympics, the distance was 300 metres. Competitors are seeded in heats according to their fastest time over the distance.

The riding discipline involves show jumping over a 350–450 m course with 12 to 15 obstacles. Competitors are paired with horses in a draw 20 minutes before the start of the event.

The shooting discipline involves using a 4.5 mm air pistol in the standing position from 10 metres distance at a stationary target. Until the 2008 rules change, the format was that of the 10 meter air pistol competition: each competitor had 20 shots, with 40 seconds allowed for each shot.

Triathlon (
Ivan Raña, Ainhoa Murua, Ana Burgos, Javier Gomez Noya, Zuriñe Rodriguez)
Is an individual sport and the athletes must have a lot of endurance, this sport involves three different sports: swimming, cycling and athletics.

The athletes who compete in this spor must practice every day because is one of the hardest sport that have existed.

There are different distances for triathlon depending on the age of the participants.

The number of athletes dedicated to triathlon has grown because it becomes an Olympic sport at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Some people say that the triathlon started in Hawaii in 1978 on a bet between Marines, but others say that the origin of triathlon was in France in a race called “Les trois sports”.

It's a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules. It has been a part of the official program of the Summer Olympic Games since 1964.

There are a lot of rules, but the basic ones are:

-The ball can’t touch the floor.

-You can’t catch and then through the ball, you have to do it with it special passes: Overhand serve, jump serve, forearm pass, jump set, block, dig..

-You can’t hit the ball twice..

-The team can’t do four consecutive contacts with the ball.

-You can’t touch the net during the play.

-You can’t pass your foot to the other court.

It is played in a not very big court, with a net in the middle, with a ball in a team of six.

Beach Volleyball
Evolved from the recreational games of volleyball played on many beaches around the world. It became an official Olympic sport in 1996. This version, rather than being played on indoor hard courts, is played on sand courts which may either be formed naturally or built specifically for the purpose. Instead of a team of six, each team consists of only two players, but otherwise the rules are almost identical with some exceptions including.

Sailing (Paul Elvstrom, Shirley Robertson)
Sailing is the propulsion of a vehicle and the control of its movement with large (usually fabric) foils called sails.
The event was included in the 1896 Olympic Games but could not take place due to inclement weather. Sailing began its uninterrupted run from the London 1908 Olympic Games onwards. Sailing competitions at the Olympics are held in different classes or types of boats.
