Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about a horse rider from Germany and learning the word 'entirely'.
Some athletes not only have to train for their sport but also have to go to work.
German horse rider Hinrich Romeike works 5 days a week as a dentist and trains in his
free time.
Let's hear from him.
Listen for how many medals Hinrich won at the last Olympics in Beijing and listen for the
word 'entirely'.

Together with my horse Marius I won a double gold at the Beijing Olympics in Hong Kong
in 3-day eventing.
A typical day is very busy, yes. It's my proper job, my dentistry. I normally train when I
come home at lunchtime and I can train when I come home in the evening. For me I do
horse riding because I like it. I do it entirely because I love it.

So did you hear how many medals Hinrich won at the last Olympics in Beijing?
Yes it was two medals.
Hinrich said he won a double gold.

Entirely is an adverb and means completely or solely.
In this context it means solely, in other words for only one reason and no other.
So Hinrich's only reason for horse riding is because he loves it.
"I do it entirely because I love it."
Well, we have learnt the word entirely. Now let's hear from some people in London.
Listen to how they use this word.

I play rugby because I like it. I do it entirely for the love of the game.
I entirely agree that Britain's weather is not as good as Spain's!
It was entirely my fault that I failed my exams. I didn't study hard enough.
