Last week I was lucky enough to go to the Olympics!

With the games in London, the energy in the city was palpable and I knew I had to go, so we managed to get hold of some tickets and headed down on a sunny Friday afternoon to see some track & field athletics action.

I saw...  Men's Pole Vault Final, Women's 4 x 400m Relay Round 1, Men's Decathlon Victory Ceremony, Women's Hammer Throw Final, Men's 4 x 100m Relay Round 1, Women's 5000m Final, Women's Javelin Throw Victory Ceremony, Women's 4 x 100m Relay Final, Women's 1500m Final, Women's 5000m Victory Ceremony, Men's 4 x 400m Relay Final, Women's Hammer Throw Victory Ceremony and the Women's 4 x 100m Relay Victory Ceremony. Not bad going huh?!

Unfortunately I couldn't get a good enough picture of the real thing, so this will have to do

This video shows its beauty much better...
My new friend Farrah, who I met on the train. He was working at the Olympic site, and told me stories about all the amazing people he'd met, and the stories he'd heard whilst working there.
