I have Olympic fever!!

I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed the variety of sports that are included in the London 2012 Olympics!  Down side though, I can’t watch very much of the live action (I have to work, like so many of us), so have to rely on BBC highlights, website & twitter to find out what’s going on!

Handball – never seen it played before and with a sticky ball that picks up all the dirt from the floor (pitch?) YUCK.  Apparently the ball has a coating of some sticky substence as otherwise the ball is difficult to grip!  As long as TeamGB manage to let go when shooting for goal, we’ve got a good chance at another medal (fingers crossed)

And what about the Badminton scandal – can’t really believe any team would try to deliberately loose a match, but that’s what seems to have happened and now those teams have been disqualified. 

Anway, looks like Ben Ainslie has got his work cut out to sail past the leading Danish sailor, but there’s still hope that Ben will come good. Come on Ben!!

Great news of course & congratulations to Bradley Wiggins now known as Wiggo!! He is a true champion of  cycling and the most honoured British Olympic medallist we’ve seen.  Loving those side burns – looks like a craze has begun! http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/19093942 Will a knighthood be on its way??

Congrats to the GB lightweight 4 rowing team who’ve just won Silver!  Yay!!

Lightweight four win silver

Silver Team Gb Mens Lightweight Four!

Got to get back to work now, unfortunately 🙁
