Champion Team GB

Flag handover

Olympic flag is handed to Rio!

What an amazing and spectacular Olympics we have just witnessed!

From the Opening to Closing Ceremonies, and all the athletic action in the 16 days in between, has given our whole nation something to be proud of, including 65 medals!!

To think that it only 16 years ago we managed to gain just one medal, so it is incredible just how far our athletes have progressed since 1996.

Everyone in Team GB is a champion, and that includes their entire support network of coaches, trainers, not forgetting their families and friends who give the encouragement and belief to our athletes to succeed.

It’s going to feel a little strange now that London 2012 is over. I do hope that the all athletes and the fantastic Games Makers take a well deserved break, and look back with fond memories on two very special weeks of their lives.

I’m going to miss the excitement the Games brought – I want every day to be Super Saturday 

And now we look forward to the Paralympics, which I am sure will be just as incredible.

Must try and get some tickets….
