During the closing ceremony we were all surprised by a secret visit by Marc Ryan, who won bronze at the London Olympics with the NZ Track Cycling Team. He answered some questions and then presented the medals to the winning teams.
As everyone left, Room 7 managed to sneak in for a whole class photo with him. This was very exciting for us all as not only could we shake his hand but we could actually hold his bronze medal...an actual real medal from the London Olympics (and it was really heavy!) Room 7 was ecstatic and most of the class went home claiming they will never wash the hand they touched Marc/the medal with again! Here's hoping they do!
