The Anonymous Widower

Kingston Comes To Stratford

On Friday night, there was a lot of Jamaican  flags in the crowd at the Olympic Stadium. I think it is true to say, that after the British, Jamaica was one of the best supported nations in the athletics. But then Jamaica is a small nation and London, or perhaps New York, are the nearest they’ll get to a home Olympics.

In fact, this must have been the best games for other Caribbean nations too!

On the other hand, Usain Bolt and others in the Jamaican team,  were fulsome in their praise of the help they received in Birmingham, where they were based in the UK. Did it help training amongst friends? And did it help the other Caribbean nations too?

We’ll never know for sure.  But surely friendships made during these Games, will in future benefit everybody!

  2. London has taken the athletes to their hearts. And it’s been reciprocated.
