First Female Olympic Winner 396 BC
Interview with Kyniska, the first female olympic athlete
Earlier this week, i had the amazing opportunity to sit down with the Olympic athlete Kyniska, and talk about her feelings about winning the Olympics.
Interviewer: When you were younger, did you ever think you would win the Olympics?
Kyniska: I definitely knew that i wanted to be in the Olympics, but i never guessed that i would win. At least not right away anyways. Haha.
Interviewer: Haha, well i watched you, and i must say, you were pretty good.
Kyniska: Thank you, but i owe it all to my four horses. they did all the work, i just held the reins.
Interviewer: I heard that you really enjoy working and training with the horses. Why is that?
Kyniska: I don't know, I've just always loved horses. They are amazing creatures.
Interviewer: That's good. Do you plan on returning to the Olympics?
Kyniska: I do, and i plan on winning again!
Interviewer: I'm sure you will! Thank you for taking the time to talk to me.
Kyniska: Oh, it wasn't a problem at all.
