Olympic Triathlon – London 2012

August 7, 2012

Off to Hyde Park I went, to witness our British boys do their best in the Men’s Triathlon.

I arrived over an hour before the race started, but the Park was already rammed and a spot along the cycle route was the best I could get. The atmosphere was wonderful, flags everywhere, beaming faces and non-stop cheering. Many people who couldn’t get tickets had come from all over the country, just for the day.

And the very best Team GB did! Alistair Brownlee got the Gold and younger brother Jonny Brownlee got Bronze, despite having a 15 second penalty. I didn’t get to see the Medal Ceremony, due to queues outside the big screen. But luckily there were speakers everywhere so while swamped in the sea of the crowd, we all stood there together and sang the National Anthem. Well done to the Brownlee Bros, and their team mate  Stuart Hayes!
