Its feels like yesterday there were signs all over London promoting the Events. Everyone in the country felt proud to be British! All eyes on Great Britain, Team GB Rocking it for the Nation.
The Olympics were finally coming home.
The Opening and Closing ceremonies were talked about throughout the World. Portraying what it's meant to be British, music, fashion, our heritage, actors, authors, muscians & models. I hope the World got it, it was pretty fantastic and a lot of fireworks!
Great Britain is GREAT! We have amazing, talented, profession athletes.
A List of our Olympic Athletes medals
Bradley Wiggins,Victoria Pembleton, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis & Andy Murray. Truly remarkable people just to name a few.
A year later they haven't been forgotten. We still hear their names on news, radio and TV, see their faces in magazines, on posters. Most our still living in the glory of 2012. The next Olympics wont be hosted until 2016, in Rio, Brazil. Our athletes are continuously training, working hard to beat personal bests, break World records, working for the next biggie, breaking the Olympic records and training to make sure they make the grade to compete.
London's Anniversary Games has some of the world's top athletes return to the Olympic Stadium one year on from London 2012. The event was sponsored by Sainsbury's, arranged by the IAAF Diamond League who take this league around the World.
The Anniversary Events took place over 3 days, from the 26th July, highlighting some major Olympic events. Its was a broadcasted on the BBC too. I was lucky enough to return to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This time I set foot into the stadium, I took my boys. The stadium was packed out to the rooftop. We were armed with our flags and painted faces, cheering for Great Britain.
Its was great to watch our heros again. Lots of events with athletes ready to take center stage again for their countries. I'm sure the events give the British team fire in the bones to be back in such a magical place
The atmosphere was electric, a lot of spectators cheering & jeering. I really hope these events will be hosted next year. Lots of cheers for our Non-British favourites, champions in their field such as Usain Bolt. He ran the last leg of the of the Mens 4x100m Relay. Yes the Jamaicans won!
My favorite moment was when Mo Farah took his place for the 3000m, he stayed near the front for the majority of his race, letting the pace makers do all the hard work. 2nd to last lap he was in the lead, pulling away from the rest of the field, edging further and further away. The last 200m he belted it through the finishing line. A true gent, he was beaming from ear to ear!
A very bright future for Katarina Johnson-Thompson - Heptathlon
Katarina Winning the Long Jump She's is only 20! I will be watching this space and keep feeling proud to be British
