A Day at the Olympics

A DAY AT THE OLYMPICS LONDON 2012
A day off from writing, books and bookshops - one of my wonderful daughters took me to the Olympics! Here are a few of the many highlights.
The Olympic Park was beautifully laid out, and we met many sports fans from all around the world: Russia, Japan, Pakistan, Jamaica as well as all over Europe:


Not forgetting supporters of Team GB!

We had a great view from where we were sitting

I  wanted to share a photo of Usein Bolt running, but he was too fast, and I was too excited! Here he is with one of his gold medals.

Another highlight was meeting Chris Hoy - the most successful British Olympian ever!

And finally thanks to the wonderful police, and all the volunteers, who made the day run so smoothly for everyone.

It was a great day, Bernard! Glad you enjoyed looking at them. I tried to give a tiny flavour of what it was like - there was SO much to see, and the atmosphere was amazing!

I would be too, if I wasn't me, Charles!

Thanks, Guillaume. I was trying to give a sense of what it was like, but there was just too much excitement! It was a great day.
