This years olympics are really looking so stunningly good! Despite China’s image of the games (the right little girl etc). I do think that overall they have been such a huge success!
The spirit of the Olympics I believe is that we all enjoy sport regardless of political views, and whilst we may not agree with each other’s views it does prove that we can still get along together.
What will stay with me forever from this Games are the memories of Russia and Georgia playing each other in the beach volley ball just the day the two countries announced a cease fire. The sporting attitudes were a pleasure to witness.
I think we must remember that the games are not just a success for China’s image or Team GB’s gold count but also for human kindness. They continue to prove that we can get along on the same pitch, field, lake or sea.
