Can horses be OLYMPIC ATHLETES? Find out on tonight's true or false Chompers!

Where to Listen



>>RACHEL: Welcome back, it’s time for Chompers, your twice daily toothbrushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush in little circles around each tooth…

>>RACHEL: 3, 2, 1 brush!


>>RACHEL: It’s sports week, and tonight we have more true or false to make your mind RACE! 


>>RACHEL: If you think it’s true, you’ll give it a thumbs up…


>>RACHEL: False, thumbs down.


>>RACHEL: Here’s your first one: 

There is Olympic sport where athletes ride horses…


>>RACHEL: So, is this true or false? If it’s true thumbs up, if its false, thumbs down.

Ready for the answer? First switch to the other side of the top of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -and keep brushing.

Its True!



>>RACHEL: Equestrian is the category in the Olympics for all sports having to do with horses. In the eventing competition, people jump their horses over barriers and turn around tight turns. And then there’s DRESSAGE. That’s like horse Dancing! 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth… 


>>RACHEL: -and brush those front teeth too

Here’s another true or false:

Curling is a sport where weightlifters see who can curl the heaviest weights

So is it true or false? Thumbs up or thumbs down? 

The answer is … FALSE!


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard

Curls ARE an exercise you can do with at the gym with heavy weights but CURLING isn’t a weightlifting sport. CURLING is a sport played on ice.  There’s something called a “STONE” that the players -- called curlers -- push down the ice into a big circle to score a point.   



>>RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers tonight! Come back tomorrow for more sports week, and until then…

>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1, spit!
