However, like the majority of the world I’ve become fully addicted to all things Olympics and since it started I’ve been glued to the telly!
We were one of the lucky few (well 50,000 odd) who managed to get XC day tickets. We also managed beach volleyball and football so headed down to London for two nights of Olympic madness; and what a time we had!
All I can say is how proud am to be British! The atmosphere at every venue was amazing, the venues presented beautifully and the organisation was fantastic! A huge thanks must go to our Armed Forces who also did a Stella job at security and were a real credit not only to the games but to our country!
For the rest of my life I will remember the noise the crowd at Greenwich made when a GB rider set off. I wasn’t riding and it nearly causes me to well up, so god only knows how our riders felt!
The XC course was presented beautifully and amazing despite the amount of people it didn’t feel too small despite obviously being limited in size.
We met some amazing people when in London, from Meeting Horsey Hoodies Owner Teri (On a pure off chance too!) to the Australian Volleyball supporters sat next to me at Horse Guards.
Sadly when I returned home it became evident that I had literally caught a fever which the turned into a chest infection and triggered my asthma off. The only plus to being ill was the fact the Olympics is still on! Yippee!!!
