All I can say is ... WOW
From my point of view these Olympics have been breathtaking! So much passion, sport, spirit and grit! A lot of hard work has paid off since the announcement and glad it has shone a positive light on our part of the world!
The opening ceremony was a spectacle. Danny Boy has put on a show stopping arena celebrating all parts of the United Kingdom from old to new. Loved the little cameos from Mr Bean and James Bond (nice touch)! Take a bow son!
At this point of writing Team GB have 22 Gold medals with 5 days of competition left. Let there be more as it is well deserved!! My moment of the games to date has to be Andy Murray winning the Tennis event at Wimbledon. To think that last month he lost to R Fed in the final at the exact same venue is incredible. It looked like a role reversal with Murray showing the passion and combat needed to win a Grand Slam. I have followed his career from the very beginning and am glad he is starting to prove those doubters wrong!
Funniest part of these Olympics has actually just happened in the Women's hurdles! Hilarious coincidence that the women who falls over and fails to finish is called ...
Yep (written in the script) .. Vania Stambolova! Also intrigued by all the sport on television and like every other Brit taking time to enjoy this occasion and embracing new things. Never in my life did I expect to watch handball or weightlifting!!
Hurrah for Britain (and Northern Ireland)
