Team GB - In Style

"Massively Proud!"
 "Well done, Lads!"
 "Wucking hawd to bring ohm the gold!" (That's my Scottish accent)
Everywhere you look there are Union Jacks and "Go Team GB" is the predominant chant, as it should be with the Triathlon taking place in the heart of this beautiful city.  Sandra and I managed to catch a glimpse of the cycling portion as they raced around Hyde Park and down Kensington Road for a loop around Buckingham Palace.
After the seventh lap we raced across the park to the Diana Memorial near Isis, again hoping to catch a glimpse of the runners circling the Serpentine Pond...
Crowds were 10-12 deep lining the park and assumed every vantage point along the route with the majority supporting the Brownlee brothers.....

That's when I noticed it........Do you see a pattern?

Copy cats!!!

 The Brownlee Brothers took Gold and Bronze and it was a proud day for Team GB!

haha what a refreshing read, getting tired of the repetitive news style articles about the olympic events and this was a delight to read :) I've resorted to watching these fun 'rap up' videos which summarise the days events in a min rap, so fun! You should check them out if you have a spare min:

You had your own mini triathlon just keeping up!!! I loved seeing the flag capes! The Union Jack lends itself well to fashion!

I love the Union Jacks... Were you and Sandra sporting your flag capes as you ran through the park?

I'm going to miss your olympic updates!
