The last few days in pictures

At 7 am outside Eton Dorney.



I am not going to write a blog about my day at the Olympic rowing. It was fantastic as I am sure you can imagine and totally worth getting up at 4 am  but I am going to share a few photos to make you really jealous. xx
Competing nation flags along the top of a grandstand.
8 am. Me, my friend Louise and Wenlock. Check out the clear blue sky.
Sitting in the rings. We did some very British queuing for our chance to do this.
Official flags near the start line
Team GB girls smashing Women's Double Sculls race
Australia winning their Men's Coxless Four Heat
Team GB Men's Coxless Fours - look at that lead!!!!!!
Post races practising
Team USA - see I still thought of you all when I was being all patriotic.
Canada - I didn't forget you either
Me and Louise at the finish line.
 And after all the walking (I must have done a good 10K) a new low ...

In stones and pounds
In pounds

In kilos

Congratulations on the new low!

I attended the 1996 Olympic rowing events when they took place in my hometown. It was exciting! I'm so glad you've had fun!

What an absolute GORGEOUS day. I'm sure you had a wonderful time. I lived in Atlanta during the 1996 Olympics and it really is neat to have such a historical event happening where you live!
