Have you been glued to your TV watching the Olympics?
So many of the sports seemed to be based on speed – death defying speed!
Athletes barrel down the mountain on skis or sleds at speeds upwards of 95 km/h (150 mph) and 152 km/h (95 mph) for luge.
Speed skaters can attain speeds of up to 70 km/h (43 mph).
And figure skaters while moving at high speed jump or are thrown into the air!
Do you find yourself holding your breath while watching?
So what drives these athletes to do what they do?
It has got to be PASSION!
So in honour of ‘passion’ I thought ‘red’ should be the colour of the day.
PS. Remember to breathe!

I thought these red items looked like they could ski, skate or slide.
