Olympics 2012 - Heroes Board

Yes, Tina makes it onto the Olympic Heroes Board.  Not just because she won a Silver Medal but because, when I met her last November, she let me hold her previous Olympic medal. And she's a local hero too!

OK, so you need to realise, straight up, that nobody makes the Olympics Heroes Board JUST because they win a Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal. Usually I expect something more..... You will get the idea soon enough.

 

Having said that, the gorgeous Golden Girls of Rowing, Heather and Helen, deserve their place on the Heroes Board.  We were all getting quite maudlin about our failure to strike gold so by winning "our" first Gold Medal, they have, in the words of Gary Lineker (he of the crisps adverts) "lifted the mood of the nation."  Attagirls!

This wonderful blog has summed up the true meaning of A Christmas Day. Once the dread of a restricted day had sunk in, other ways were invented. Thank you
