For the past 13 days I’ve been glued to the BBC in the car, on runs, in the evening and then catching up in the morning when I’ve fallen asleep to see yet more medals have been won over night. Team GB have shown so much courage, determination and talent to currently be lead 2nd in the medal table as I write this.
The Olympics is a great way to experience so many new sports to the usual ones we see covered. Various martial arts, canoe and kayak sprints and slaloms, equestrian, diving, BMX and the list goes on. Whatever the sport the participants are all true athletes, they dedicate their life to training and competing. Watching the triathlon yesterday Alistair Brownlee mentioned in his interview after winning his 2nd consecutive Gold Olympic medal that he wakes up every day with tired legs but still trains as hard as he can. Mo Farah commented that he has done a variation of training everyday for the last 4 years to say he has given this Olympics his best effort. He certainly wasn’t going to let a trip up stand in his way, quickly returning to his feet and flying past the rest of the field taking another gold in the 10,000M.
Next week I shall write another post to sum up the great 2 weeks of Sport however we still have an exciting couple of days ahead with many medal chances still available. GO TEAM GB!
