Full Transcript

While it’s amazing that Aussie gold medallist Kyle is still at high school there is one athlete at the Olympics who’s only just graduated primary school! Gaurika is 13-years old making her the youngest person to compete at Rio. UK kids news show Newsround caught up with her to find out what it’s like.

RICKY, NEWSROUND: Most 13-year-olds are worried about school, playing games on their tablets and smart phones or just chilling with their mates. But imagine being 13-years-old and representing your country in the Olympics.

Gaurika has spent the last few days doing loads of interviews. That’s because the world wants to speak to the youngest athlete here at the Olympics.

GAURIKA: Yeah, well I felt really proud, hopefully I’ve made them proud as well

She’s representing Nepal, a country in South Asia where she was born. More than 10 years ago her family moved to England but last year she earned the right to represent Nepal in swimming

GAURIKA: My Dad’s out here with but my Mum and my grandparents are in England watching with my brother.

Earlier this week she got her taste of an Olympic Games, and being at the opening ceremony was a huge deal

GAURIKA: Yeah, there was like a wall throughout the whole opening ceremony, and then you’d see Brazil come out and there was screaming and there were people dancing, it was amazing

The teenager still can’t believe she’s here in Rio, and now she wants to talk about the country she loves and hopefully win medals for, Nepal, at the next summer Olympics in 2020.

RICKY: Tom Daley was one of the youngest ever athletes back in Bejing in 2008 and look at him. He went on to win bronze twice in London and now here. Do you think you’ll be able to medal one day?

GAURIKA: Well, I hope so. Hopefully I can qualify for 2020 Tokyo, so let’s hope for the best

RICKY: Is that the next kind of aim for you then?

GAURIKA: Yeah that’s the next aim hopefully.
