Olympic Fever!

7 Aug

I’m not ashamed to admit it – I have Olympic Fever!

Before the games started, I was pretty excited about the hockey being shown on tv, and seeing Tom Daley dive, but other than that, I was just going to watch the 100m final and carry on as normal.

Oh how wrong I was – I have been glued to the tv for hours every day getting very overexcited about sports that I either don’t understand, or didn’t even know existed!!

It’s so exciting to think that the Olympics are actually taking place in England – the whole country seems to be embracing the spirit and getting very overexcited already.

I was  alittle concerned that the first few days of my Eurotrip this week may be wasted because lots of the events will be coming down to crunch time, but my friend assures me that as Athens is the home of the Olympics, we will fit right in!

The hockey has been my favourite event (no surprise there!) but I have also enjoyed the handball – that game looks like so much fun!! Have you embraced the olympic spirit? What have you enjoyed watching?

      Apparantly if there were no swimming events, we’d be above Team USA right now 😉

    Same, I have been loving it. And you are right, the handball is awesome, I can’t believe I’ve never watched it before!
