I confess that I’ve got nothing done this week. I’ve seriously just been glued to my TV watching every event I possibly can and have been loving every second! And then re-watching it again on the Olympic roundup every night until the early hours. I’m so pleased that I have a ‘flexible’ job! So this weekend saw the most successful day for Team GB for 104 years with six gold medal wins on day eight of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Simply amazing! Here’s some of the amazing medal winners (couldn’t fit them all on now that we have 16 gold, 10 silver and 10 bronze medals!):
As you know, I’m really rooting for all the female athletes and celebrating girl power on Twitter each time the GB ladies bring home a medal! And I’m so pleased for Andy Murray finally getting his win at Wimbledon against Roger Federer. What an amazing time to take the win! Well done Jess Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ben Ainslie who did fantastically well this weekend – it must be tough when everyone ‘expects’ you to win; imagine the added pressure on top of the athletes’ own desperation to do their best at the home Olympic games! I think that the whole of the Olympics has been amazing so far, and the athletes are inspirational – keep up the good work Team GB!
