Day 5: Five questions that I would ask Marjorie Gestring

Activity 2 Day 5: Five questions that I would ask Marjorie Gestring if I was alive in 1936 and interviewed her.
Activity 2:  In 1936, a 13 year old girl named Marjorie Gestring became the youngest person to ever win an Olympic gold medal. She won the gold medal in the springboard diving competition. Imagine that you were alive in 1936 and you had the chance to interview her. On your blog, post five questions that you would like to ask the Olympic champion (if you had the chance to meet her!).

1. What inspired you to do diving?

2. How did you feel after winning an Olympic Gold medal?

3. When did you first start doing diving?

4. Do you feel nervous before diving in?

5. Why did you choose to do the sport diving?

  1. Great questions, Mikaela. I would also have asked Marjorie about what inspired her and about how she felt when she dove. I think that she's quite inspirational, personally. It must have been quite difficult to be so young and to be competing at such an elite level with people who were much older than she was.

    I wonder who the youngest athlete will be at the Rio Olympics this year...

    Cheers, Rachel
