Haven't posted much in here as due to time difference I'm recording a lot over night and in the morning then watching it all in the evening after work - so have been avoiding looking anything up to see results.
The Olympics and World Cups tend to take over my whole life when they are on and this time is no different. Saturday for me has to be not just the greatest day in the history of British Athletics, but British sport overall. Ennis was incredible and then a completel unexpected long jump win. I found that the most exciting as every time it came to the American or one of the others I assumed they would jump further, and they never did. Farrah's win will probably go down as the iconic moment of the games. For a British athlete to win the 10,000m over all the Africans is something you can't put into words. Even my Dad told me last night on the phone that he's been waiting his whole life to see a Brit win the 10,000m. Then of course there were cycling and rowing golds on the same day.
Didn't think anything ever would do this, but I think for me that day has even topped Arsenal winning the league unbeaten and England winning the Ashes in Australia.
It's not that important in the grand scheme of things, but how f**king incredible is the Sports Personality awards going to be this year? So many heroes. Wiggins with a Tour de France and gold medal within a couple of weeks of each other. Murray with a Wimbledon final and gold medal (and who knows in the US Open?). Kenny with 2 golds, Pendleton maybe the same, Hoy with yet another gold. Ainslie with a 4th consecutive gold medal. Ennis and Farrah etc.
Chris Evans (on Radio 2) has been talking about the SPOTY and we all know who's going to get the team one
but who for individual?
Chris' radio coverage has been on every day during the olympics and it's been great - I yearn to be there and be part of it.
Another 'golden' day at the olympics - well done everyone
