Day 7 - BONUS

Sunday 17 July
Day 7 - BONUS

Bonus - This year two new sports are being added to the Paralympic Games. They are canoeing and triathlon. In the triathlon the athletes must swim 750 metres, cycle for 20 kilometres, and then run for 5 kilometres. Paralympic athletes may also compete in other sports including archery, boccia, football, judo, powerlifting, rowing, sailing, swimming, sitting volleyball, track cycling, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair rugby, and wheelchair tennis. To learn more about all of the Paralympic sports, please visit the 2016 Paralympic Games website.

Imagine that you are on the Paralympic Committee and you have been asked to create one new sport to add to the competition for this year. Use your awesome imagination to design a brand new Paralympic sport. Please remember that some of the athletes will not be able to walk or run and others may be blind or deaf. On your blog, please write:

  1. The name of your sport
“The Travelling Egg”

  1. A brief description of how you play the sport
The game that I have come up up with is called "The travelling egg". The Travelling egg is suitable for the Paralympic Athletes to play. This game can be played by either Deaf,Blind or anyone who's in a Wheelchair. For participants that are Deaf, the game can be introduced to them through hand signals. In which to say, this game consists of an egg being put on a spoon. By this, the participant playing needs to make sure the egg sits on the spoon until the finishing line. However, for the participants that are blind they do get a head start of 8 seconds.


  1. Three rules for the sport

  • Rule 1) If the egg falls off the spoon you're out
  • Rule 2) One hand behind your back
  • Rule 3) No RUNNING!

  1. Good morning Caroline!

    I have just had the pleasure of reading through all of your posts and I am just so impressed. Wow! You have done an incredible job. I hope that you are very proud of all of your great work! I was particularly impressed by the 'Travelling Egg' idea. That is so creative! You have clearly thought carefully about what would work for people with disabilities and come up with a fabulous idea.

    Great work, Caroline:)

    Cheers, Rachel
