Today I acclaim a wonderful London Olympics 2012, and a truly magnificent performance from all those that represented team GB.
Having just watched the tremendous closing ceremony, I felt the patriotism surge through me, and wanted to pay my respects and special tributes to those who medal shinned gold.
Seeing Team GB winning a record number of gold’s has I know given our entire country a boost, and I have no doubts persuaded many people to follow their dreams. Well done to all
Congratulations to everybody who played a part I’ve loved every second.
Bring on Rio, I can’t wait. And if you’re an enthusiastic talented sports person get training, lets see the hard work pay off and get yourself to the next Olympics. Your medal awaits.
A big thank you.
