Big Ben

by Crystal Maclean from Nova Scotia, Canada


My hero is Big Ben the horse because he was a great athlete and he was never interested in giving up. Big Ben is a champion. In 1984, he began competing in show jumping events. He won two consecutive World Cup titles and two gold medals at the Pan Am Games in 1987.

Big Ben always had the courage to go into a jumping stadium and win. Big Ben was courageous because when he was competing, he was never wiling to give up, even when he was sick.

Big Ben was a champion. He was a World Cup champion in 1988 and 1989. He won two gold medals at the 1987 Pan Am Games. He was a Canadian champion in 1990. Big Ben was one of two horses inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.

Big Ben was a hero. Big Ben was a courageous horse who was a great champion. He was never wiling to give up. He always wanted to do his best.
