The Anonymous Widower

The Games Of The British Underdogs

This is becoming very much a games where some of the British medals have been won by athletes who were not fancied and have had tremendous difficulty getting to the Games at all.

Outstanding is probably Gemma Gibbons in the judo, who won an unexpected silver after the death of her mother to leukaemia a few years ago, then had a difficult draw.

I know they haven’t won a medal, but at least they’ve won a match for the first time. But the trials and tribulations of the Volleyball team have been enormous, as detailed in The Sun, in the paper’s inimitable manner.

Remember what Mark Twain said, “It’s not the size of the dog, but the size of the fight in the dog”

  1. Waking up to “Team GB is 3rd on the Medal Count” on my radio . . . this Games is much more than form or expectations for GB . . .

    The musical theme . . . Chariots of Fire, is the emergence of Team GB, in much more than Sport . . . the Best of British is on Show to the World.

    The Games are a sign to the World that GB is back . . . the Team GB, has picked up that Psyche. Many Oz Silvers, are less than a Heartbeat away from Gold . . .

    What is that Heartbeat . . . Team GB Heart is Beating Strongly, so many people.

    Not just as these Games, but in many Sports . . .

    The Rowing WOW, Cycling WOW and many other Sports.

    Congratulations . . . Well Done
