    Re: Tokyo Olympics 2020

    What a marvellous achievement to finish 4th. Only superpowers and host nation did better. I'm so pleased the games went ahead - different to other years but still so much to enjoy and admire and I'm sure it's boosted people's spirits. The cherry on the cake would have been a medal for Andy but just seeing him so animated and pumped up was fantastic - there's still plenty of fire in that belly.

    Great Jason Kenny had a win in Tokyo after some earlier challenges, real pity Laura had that crash but both finish with a Gold and a Silver. GB certainly done well in the circumstances and a few hopes had injury woes. To match the London total no mean feat, though 7 more Gold in London. Beyond that enjoyed watching a number of top performers the Games (obviously a few stars retired since 2016 but some new ones), whilst obviously it was not quite the same certainly enjoyed the games and glad they went ahead too. Know there was a fair bit of opposition in Tokyo but commentators seem to think attitudes changed somewhat. pity that there was another covid wave in Japan of cbviously, Paralympics start 24 August.

    one benefit of course for Paris 2024 will be the time zone for Tv vewing.

    A successful paralympics come to a close (even if could not be quite the same under closed doors again) and GB remained in 2nd place behind China with 124 medals in total! A great games of course for Sarah Storey winning 3 Gold and taking 17th medal overall ,once of our new stars was swimmer Reece Dunne who won 5 medals. Seen a fair bit of it myself. Whilst bit of a disappointment was a silver for Hewett/Reid whilst Gordon edged out Alfie to take the Bronze in the singles. Unfortunately Hewett's future uncertain due to elegibility rules.
