My Olympics – The Torch

So the curtain has finally closed on London 2012 but fear not!

All this week I will be showing all you lovely people photographs from my Olympics (I didn’t compete but you know what I mean!). I will end the week with a blog post that has been many months in the making about what the whole Olympics has meant to me.

The first photograph is of the Olympic torch. It was the instrument that sparked (hardy ha ha) the British publics unequal-able enthusiasm for the Olympics. We came out in the wind, rain, hail and on the rare occasions sunshine to wave at celebrities and strangers alike. We cheered not because they had a fire ball on a stick in their hands but because they were symbolising us, the brilliant British.

But I’ll save the rest of my words for the end of the week and without further a do……. Let the games begin!

    Nice post. I learn something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’s going to all the time be stimulating to read content material from other writers and observe a little bit one thing from their store. I’d want to use some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

    What a year! I’m not really sports oriented but like most of Britain I was gob-smacked by it all, and now we have enigmatic Mr Murray bearing silverware. Proud of him and all the Olympians too.

      That’s been the most amazing thing to see, everyone getting so interested in so many different sports. I got completely addicted to archery, something I had never watched before then. Andy has really put the cherry on the top this summer of sport. It’s going to be a tough act to follow….
