Its impossible not to blog about the Olympics, after all the cynicism for 7 years it was a triumph - WITH MEDALS!.
We went up to watch the Double Trap at Woolwich and saw Peter Wilson take Gold, a fantastic experience generating lots of massive nationistic pride. The other competitors were great and there was a fantastic atmosphere throughout. Anyone who thinks that trap or double trap is boring should have watched the thrilling competition.
Congratulations to Peter Wilson, but in a way we were all winners. Not in the namby pamby non-competitive way, but in the thorough fun of competition which was glorified. All the athletes were fantastic - obviously especially the British ones and especially the medal winners!
