This is a sports commentary at the Olympic Games. Put in the correct prepositions, e.g. for, from.
So Australia’s Steve Brearley wins the gold medal ahead of Germany’s Klaus Schliemann and Ivan Podorosky of Bulgaria. They’re just congratulating Brearley on his victory. His speed over the first kilometre split the runners two groups, and in the end it was a race between the three leaders. Brearley prevented Schliemann overtaking him in a sprint finish. I’ve always regarded Brearley a great athlete, and look how well he’s done today. I would even compare him the great Emil Kristo himself. There’s no doubt now that Brearley will be invited Oslo for the next World Championships. So the Australian runner adds another medal his collection. And Australia are doing really well in the medals table. In fact, they share second place the United States.
