This was taken from the Times “cool runnings” I just love this.
I really enjoyed the Olympics and I am so proud of Team GB.
I was a proud supporter of both Team GB and Jamaica and boy did they deliver.
I love how it has given everyone a buzz for sport, my little ones have said to me that they want to bring home gold medals and are already perfecting many sports with the Olympics in mind.
I think it is great that children of all ages enjoyed it and have become more active.
I loved every moment and I am now missing it so much, I am now looking forward to the Paralympics.
Both teams won some medals
Team GB 29 Gold 17 Silver 19 Bronze
Jamaica won 12 medals
Many new records were set this Olympics with Jamaica finishing off with the 4×100-meter relay final.
The Jamaican team finished in 36.84 setting a new Olympic relay record.
I had to share some of my many favourite images from both the teams.
Images are not mine and are solely for blog use.
I am absloutly appauled today to hear that after the amazing win from Gabby Douglas of the USA, after winning her second gold medal in the Olympics she has come under attack in a Twitter row over her hair.
This to me is below the belt and shameful that a 16 year old who is working hard sweatng hard to win a medal for her country would be subjected to such abuse.
The daily mail reported
“Gabrielle Douglas has done America proud in winning her second Olympic gold medal so it comes as some surprise that a debate has broken out on Twitter over her hair.
Though she may have more important things on her mind, the Twittersphere is abuzz with discussion over the 16-year-old’s slightly-tousled ponytail.
Critics have argued that her dark locks should in fact mimic the tight, ballerina-style bun that gymnasts usually tuck their hair into.”
My thoughts are as long as her hair was pulled back what really is the problem?
God help someone like me with Natural afro textured hair which would be an absolute nightmare to tame into a tight “ballerina bun”.
I think the individuals on Twitter are very spiteful with their words and to think most are from her country. The country she will bring her Gold medals home to.
Very sad indeed.
Well done for winning the gold Gabby.
Serena Williams claimed her second Wimbledon crown in a day, teaming up with sister Venus to clinch the ladies’ doubles title in another late-night thriller under the roof on Centre Court.
After witnessing Jonny Marray become the first British doubles winner in 76 years, the crowd were treated to a display of dominance which proved the Williams family are once again a force to be reckoned with, even more brilliant together than Serena was on her own earlier in the day.
Serena equalled Venus’s tally of five Wimbledon singles titles with a three sets win over Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska, and made it 14 Grand Slam singles title in the bag.
