I’m not one to gloat but even i can’t help feeling just a tad smug over Team GB’s (thought it was Great Britain?) amazing performance at the Beijing Olympics. Not only did we beat the Aussies in Golds, but in total medals. Oh the joy.
So while the hype machine starts to wind up for the next 45 months, and the money gets frittered away, for 16 days I’m at least reminded that we can all put cynicism aside and just enjoy the amazing spectacle. I can’t wait for 2012 to come round, and I’ll be at every bloody event I can.
Goading the Aussies. 😉
