New Winter Olympics sports, as imagined by Grade 6 students
Letters from Grade 6 students at Neil Campbell School describing new
sports they'd like to watch in the Winter Olympics.
Juscenta, 11, imagines a race to Tim Hortons for a double-double on the double.
Autumn, 11, would like to see Canadians earn medals for windshield scraping, driveway shovelling, dog sledding and ice bowling.
Abby, 11, would like to see a version of ice bowling where figure skaters are the pins.
Tayman, 11, envisions a Winter Olympics sport wherein athletes race through 20 feet of snow — 'not so bad is it?'
Tessa, 11, imagines a cross between figure skating and gymnastics — with splits and cartwheels on ice.
Alexandra, 11, would like to see snow shovelling become an Olympic sport. Because if Canadians don't know how to shovel, 'Scooby-doo might as well be a normal dog.'
