London Olympics 2012 by Catherine Evans :: 03rd August 2012

I took a couple of days off this week to visit the Olympic Rowing events at Eton Dorney with my daughter and a couple of her rowing friends. We decided to dress for the occasion and certainly attracted a lot of attention! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and all the arrangements ran like clockwork. Standing almost at the waters edge there was a fantastic atmosphere and everyone cheered on all the competitors, although we may have cheered a little louder for the home crews! We were lucky enough to see the lightweight fours win Silver in a closely contested race that could have gone 3 ways! Such a fabulous experience that I will never forget! Wenlock is particularly special to us all in Shropshire as he is named after the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games – Much Wenlock!
