My Olympic athlete.

Hello my name is Casey and I am here to tell you about Alison Shanks. Alison turned to cycling in 2005 and has been in the New Zealand track team since 2006.She was fourth in the individual pursuit.London will be her second olympics after coming fourth in Beijing in the individual pursuit like I mentioned earlier.

In London she switched to the team pursuit and was teamed up with Jamie Nielsen and Lauren Ellis. My old brownie leader is a relation of hers and she asked her to come to our school and she did and showed us her helmet, her shirt, her bike, her sunglasses and things. It was really cool.

Alison Shanks was born in Dunedin and she is still living there today. She is a cycler and she cycles on a track.
The age she is at the games is 29.
