LONDON 2012 - OUR OLYMPIC EVENT!
Mr V-B and I set off yesterday for our first ever Olympic event - the Canoe Slalom at Lee Valley Water Park near Hatfield in Hertfordshire. The atmosphere was great and at times, there was lots of noise from trumpets and vuvuzelas! The course was very rapid and the paddlers very skillful to stay afloat and in their canoes. Unfortunately, David Florence, the British hope only made it as far as the semi-final and France's Tony Estanguet won the gold medal. Fortunately, the rain held off until the final race had just finished and then the heavens opened and there was a mass exodus as the stands had no shelter, so unfortunately we didn't see the medal ceremony.
Here are a few photos from the day:-
