Team GB = Gold

After my slightly negative thoughts on Team GB a couple of weeks ago before the start of the Olympics, I have been taken completely by surprise by how well Team GB are doing. I love watching the Olympics anyway, but see how well we are doing is just incredible. Sometime last week when we only had three medals and was around 10th on the medals table, I was seriously considering becoming a honorary US supporter (luckily I didn’t). Since then the games have been brilliant and we have done so well especially in the cycling and rowing. Today I watched the high jump and surprisingly, even the commentators were surprised, we got a silver and Germaine Mason wasn’t even on the list for the competitors expected to get a medal – good on him. So at the end of day 11 we are third on the medal table with 33 medals in total, 16 of them are gold! USA and China are miles ahead of us in the total medal count but it is great to see us up there at the top of the table! Good for Team GB! Can’t wait for the rest of the week of the Olympics.
