I am not great on sports – I tend to like lonesome activities like hill walking but I thought the Olympics were a great success. From the stunning opening ceremony to the closing ‘party’ and all the activities in between it really did show all the strengths of the UK.
Few other countries could replicate such a celebration of our historic achievements like the industrial revolution, our modern entertainment industry and the founding of the World Wide Web. And what other country would have created an image of the head of state leaping out of a helicopter with film hero!? As for the volunteers – they all deserve medals!
We can and should be proud of the Olympics and our own sporting success in them.
