London 2012 Olympics

We were very luck to get tickets to the games. We went on the 7th for a morning session. No medals for the morning sesssions but we got to see qualifications or round 1 sessions for Men's 200m, Men's triple jump, women's 5000m men's 110m hurdles and women's javelin.

Firstly the organisation was brilliant, London transport had it all under control, we did feel like sheep being hurded around but we were lucky enough to be kept walking all the time and the trains were fast and regular. The security checks were very fast. We had followed the instructions and arrived two hours befor the session and were in the stadium in very good time, but I would rather it had been like that than have been rushing.

It soon filled up!

The atmosphere was fabulous. I got to do my first mexican wave! Sad I know but I don't usually do these large crowd shows etc. The sound of the cheering followed any runners round the track, you could here the sound approaching you as the runners got closer, it was amazing!

We also got to see Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake Qualify for the 200m. Dean managed to get the pose!

I can not wait to tell the story on scrapbook pages, just got to get myself motivated to sit and do them.

Couple of movie clips that I took to show some of the atmosphere.
