By: Mr. Ball
On August 18, 2008, history was made. Ms. Von Squeak won the gold medal in the sitting marathon for sitting still for 5 hours straight. She broke the previous record of 4 hours 34 minutes set by Mr. Purr on July 27, 1998. Ms. Von Squeak broke a record that hadnít been broken for over 10 years!
Here is my interview with Ms. Von Squeak after she won the gold medal:
Me: So, Ms. Von Squeak, how did you feel after you won the gold medal in the sitting marathon?
Ms. Von Squeak: I was really surprised, as I didnít think that I could win it. After all, I broke a record that hadnít been broken in over 10 years!
Me: What did you do to celebrate?
Ms. Von Squeak: I ate a whole bunch of strawberries. The marathon was hard work, you know. I had to sit still for 5 hours!
Me: Thank you, Ms. Von Squeak. I hope you enjoyed the interview as much as I did. Good-bye!
Ms. Von Squeak: Thank you, Mr. Ball. Oh, look at the time! Got to run. Bye-bye!
