10-Aug-12 Been quiet? Olympics eh!

In Blog, Personal, Sports on August 10, 2012 at 4:57 pm

So you’ve probably wondered what’s happened to my blog over the last week or two? In one word “Olympics”!

In fact there are probably two words, “Work” and “Olympics”, but the later has meant that all my personal time has been consumed with Athletes “doing their thing” and watching Team GB excel!

How good was this “MO” ment. One of best for me….

Today is my first half hearted attempt, as the games start to ease off before the crescendo in the Olympic stadium on Sunday evening.

I’m sure, like me, these games have completely captured you and inspired you. Certainly they have lived up to their motto to “inspire a generation”.

There could be only one medal colour for Grainger. How we all wanted it to be gold!

I wont attempt to even capture what we have seen over the last two weeks (in this blog), but we have probably seen one of the greatest ever Olympic games and right on our own door step.

Everyone of our team GB medal winners has been inspirational, as well as those who actually even qualified, as we cannot even start to consider the personal pain they have gone through over the last 4 years to achieve their ambitions!

How did Jess handle the pressure. Pure class always shines through!

If I have one regret, it’s the fact that we missed out on Olympic tickets, but I’m expecting the tickets that we have for the Paralympics to make up for that.

This event has reminded me of everything that is “Great” about Britain.

The greatest GB Olympian of all time. Chris Hoy, the real McCoy!
