Cotton Bag~London Fashion Weekend (February 2012)
The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics have made this summer extra special! It has inspired a generation and what's even better it happened right on my doorstep.With today being the last day of the games, I thought it was best to reflect on my personal experience of the Olympics.
On the 9th of August 2012, I ventured to the North Greenwich Arena(The 02 as it is commonly known) to watch women's basketball with my sister. Now I am not a major fan of basketball, let alone women's basketball, but overall the experience was okay. I say it was okay, as we had hell trying to sort out our tickets,because we found out that our tickets didn't even go through even though we had a confirmation email!!! grr it was frustrating but it was sorted in the end.
I didn't understand most of the game, but I loved the atmosphere and the half time shows with street dancers. The extra bonus came from Ricky and Melvin from Kiss FM making two "Dads" have a dance off! I watched in awe as France steam rolled to victory against Russia, what a game!
Now, I am off to watch the last sporting events of the Paralympics and I wait in anticipation for the closing ceremony. How about you guys, did you enjoy this sporting summer?
