The end of the Olympics, or is it?

I haven’t been round much during the last two weeks so apologies if I haven’t caught up with you all but I’ve been glued to the edge of my settee, mesmerised by the different sports taking place in London.  I didn’t think I would love it so much to be honest.  I thought I would be too cynical about the excessive corporate control over the event but somehow the athletes shone through and I managed to forget about politics for a while.  For two weeks I shared the nation’s joy and excitement as our olympians fought their way to gold, silver and bronze medals, our biggest haul ever.  But it wasn’t just the winning of medals that was so exciting but watching athletes from across the world doing their best in the sport they love.  Whether it was on the track, in the pool or even out at sea it was simply awe-inspiring to watch such dedicated people.

But now it’s over and I’m feeling a tad sad that it has come to an end except it hasn’t really come to an end has it?  In about two weeks time the Paralympics will be returning to the home of its birth, London and it promises to be an inspiring and moving event.  Just click on the attached video clip and you will see what I mean.

    London did a wonderful job with the Olympics, very well done to all. It was almost ‘home games’ for our Irish athletes too! We may have only got 5 medals but it was our biggest haul in over 50 years so, thanks again London! I hope the Paralympics go just as well :-)

    London really put on a great show. And it’s great to see them do so well. Canada won 18 medals, but only one gold. I’d love if the Olympics were here because my son really liked the events. My favorite moment was when the women’s soccer team won bronze after getting ripped off. But what can you do?
