Team GB Rock

August 5, 2012 by  

BritishflagI have never been so excited about watching television as I have this past week – and it’s set to continue right up to the closing ceremony of the Olympics on Sunday.

Having tried desperately to get tickets to visit the Olympic Park (to no avail) I have resigned myself to the fact I shall have to sit at home and get emotional over our triumphs over a cuppa.

I am proud to be British and it is so heart warming to see the crowds and the reactions that all our atheletes (and from other countries) are getting.

This tops off a wonderfully British year with the Queens Diamond Jubilee, the Olympic torch being carried around Britain and now the Olympics.  The biq question will be – what shall we do next year?

I have loved seeing the emotions of our brilliant sports stars and learning to appreciate the sacrifices they have made to get where they are.  The motto – inspire the next generation- is a really good one and it has certainly had that effect on my children.  I now have children inspired in swimming, diving and rowing.

There is still so much to come but every sport has left me on the edge of my seat and I’d like to say congratulations to every team member that has taken place – medal winners or not – you are all truly inspirational.
