My sport is Discus

For discus the equipment you need are a cage and a discus.
What you do for discus is you throw a plate like rubber thing as far as you can but there are different weights.
Here are three rules.

1. You must enter from the back of the cage.

2. You must not step out of the circle that is in the floor.

3. You must get out of the cage the same way you came in.
This sport is an Olympic sport and Australia does compete in it.

It leaves you in suspense.

This ad is meant for people who like surprises.

It probably would convince me to buy McDonald’s.

I think it might convince about half the people who watch the ad to buy it.

I think it is fair to advertise in this way since it isn’t putting other companies down.
