What an amazing day for Brits. I wish I was at the Olympic Park today it must have been really buzzing there. Mo Farrah was amazing and I had Mo in a draw meaning if he won a gold I won a picnic hamper so cheers Mo. His wife must have been so nervous watching him and being heavily pregnant with twins. Think I would be calling them Jess and Greg after the other two gold winners this evening. The coverage of his daughter running over to him was lovely shows how much the families support the athletes.

Well done TeamGB

Now the Post Office will need more paint. It is painting a post box gold in every town a winning athlete comes from.

The face of the Olympics Jess Ennis has done herself proud. Well done on a well deserved gold.

Saturday we basked in the sun watching the Vollyball. Sunday we had rain and thunder. The British summer don`t you just love it.

Basketball - America and France

The indoor stadium at the Olympic Park was a welcome sight as the rain was heavy by the time we arrived.  The Olympic Village is huge and the Basketball Stadium is twenty minutes walk from the entrance gate.

Inside the Basketball  Stadium

The stadium is large and there were very few empty seats. We watched America and France play a close game well supported by fans roaring their encouragement.

Colourful Australian supporters

The beautiful boat sits showing her flags by the stadium

The Olympic Park heaves with people and everyone seems to be enjoying their day. The volunteers dance in the rain and make you want to adopt one to take home. The security is impressive and effective. We moved from our seats in the basketball stadium during the interval to get a better view of the dancing. We were very quickly challenged by two seperate security officials who asked to see tickets and ID.

With my Face painted

I won my tickets for the Vollyball, Hotel meals and Basketball tickets with the Mini Roar for GB competition. I would like to thank them for the wonderful time my neice and I had and the excellent staff who made the weekend so enjoyable.  

Mini Cars and flags

If you haven`t got any tickets yet there are plenty available for the Paralympics, I have bought four at £10 each on 5th September which not only get you into the park but also to see athletics in the stadium.
