Olympian memories

The start (of the football competition anyway) of the Olympics in Rio of course has sparked back memories of 4 years ago when the world was looking at London 2012. I managed to attend 3 events (volleyball, badminton and football) and i'm glad i did and made the effort (if you all remember getting tickets was a battle). Who knows if i'll ever be able to see Olympic events live again? There is always a chance but its probably unlikely and i would have regretted it for the rest of my life if i hadn't attended something when i had the chance. Who knows what the future will bring of course but for now i'll just rely on the TV.

The below photo was from the football which was at Coventry's Ricoh Arena. You can see my full set of photos from London 2012 here. Good luck to Rio anyway, lets hope its remembered for all the right reasons once the usual pre-event fears and scare stories fade away. There were plenty of those before London too and once it all began very little went wrong.
