Both my mum and my sister are busy, busy, busy volunteering as ‘clydesiders’ and we’re excited about our events.
On Friday, @TheWelshWookie and I are going to a Commonweath Games concert which will be broadcast live on BBC radio 2 & radio 4; on Saturday we have tickets for judo; we’ll be going along to watch the marathon on Sunday, and we’ll still have the athletics to look forward to next Friday: I can’t wait to see both Mo Farah and Usain Bolt!
Last Sunday, we got to see our second baton relay. In 2012, we were privileged to see the Olympic torch relay in Inverness:
As you can see, we made our own Olympic torches!
And we were fortunate to hold the torch itself:
This time around, the Queens Baton Relay was passing through Lochgilphead, so we were able to see it there. It was delayed, so we ended up waiting around two hours to see it 🙂
Not many people are as lucky as us! Are you planning on watching any of the Games? What are you looking forward to seeing most?
