This year I remember my relatives asking me when I was in Hong Kong 'Are you looking forward to the Olympics?', my response was a straight forward 'no'. To me at the beginning of the year Olympics didn't mean much to me, I just saw it as a pain as it was going to cause me traffic problems...the cycle race was round the area I work.
These games have been amazing, to be third in the medal table is unbelievable. Well done to everyone who took part and won a medal. You did us all proud. I particularly enjoyed watching Phelps in the swimming, Mo Farrah in the 5000m and 10000m, Chris Hoy becoming the best British Olympian of all time, 6 gold medals and Tom Daley in the diving (so hyper when he won a medal!). Definitely Our Greatest Team by miles!
I even attempted the Mo Farrah pose!
The sports were not the only thing that was great. The closing ceremony was brilliant. We had some of the best of british music....Spice Girls reunion!! Can't get better than that!
