The Olympics

The Olympics are coming to Britain in 2012. I always find the parades of all the athletes afterwards really interesting. All the Australians’ and Americans going home parading their gold medals too the adoring crowds. In Britain, we’re the only country that cheers bronze medals, you can hear your gran saying, “well it looks like a gold medal dear, it depends how the sun shines on it.” I can imagine now, all the British team marching down central London triumphantly holding up their ribbons with the word “participant” stitched on them. And because the Olympics are in Britain we would effectively be applauding people who managed to catch the right train, “well done, you caught the Central Line.”
