Describe a famous person
You should say:
Who he/she is
What he/she does
How you knew him/her
And explain why the person is famous
I admire the Chinese athelete Guo Jingjing so much. She won the gold medal in the diving competition at Sydney as well as the Beijing Olympic Games. I knew her since I was in high school. I watched her competition in the television and it left me a deep impression. She was so elegant and her motion was so light. She seldom made any mistakes so her performance was quite stable. That was amazing because I can imagine how nervous she felt having the whole world watch her, and yet she controlled herself masterfully and made a perfect dive. After that I became a huge fan of her and I would watch every competition she took. I hope that I can achieve that same level of self-control and mastery over a skill.
Guo becomes famous because she has brought pride to her country. Her diving style is unique and brave. She has won many gold medals during the world-class competitions. Besides, she is so diligent that she moves us deeply. Unlike other athletes who were trained in specialized diving schools, Guo’s training was not so privileged. She achieved her glory through hard work and a committed coach. Even after she retired from Sports Bureau, she entered in college and kept on working hard. I think she has set a good example for us to follow.
