I’ve never been sporty – I can’t even catch or throw a ball particularly well thanks to my lack of hand-eye co-ordination and clumsy nature, and I’ve never really been into watching it that much. I was also getting wary about the whole Olympics thing as we were bombarded with it, and there was a lot of fuss about tickets. But I’m really enjoying watching London 2012! It has sucked me in and thanks to not working I can watch a lot of it
As I’m writing this team GB just got our first gold medal for rowing yay! We are quite far down the table but we’re all really proud and excited for our Olympians over here as it’s a home Olympics and I’m cheering everyone along. I’m especially into tennis after watching a lot of Wimbledon a few weeks ago and hoping Andy Murray can be more successful in these games. I feel like my attitude to sport is changing – I may never be into playing myself but I can certainly support my fellow country men from the comfort of my sofa
Olympians are pretty inspirational too – proving if you’re determined and you work hard, you can be successful. As a writer I can learn from them and go for my own version of a gold medal – a publishing deal!
Any other Olympic fans out there?
