Green with envy

Four Gold medals and a total of nine medals for Team GB was the most successful day so far for GB. A brilliant 100m final race, won convincingly by Jamaica’s Usain Bolt in a World record time of 9.69sec, and the seventh Gold for Michael Phelps made the days viewing all the more satisfying to watch. Now that Phelps has his seventh I sincerely hope he goes on the take his eighth and set a new record breaking best.

My own sporting prowess on the Bowling Green was curtailed even before it began today due to stomach and back pains as I was unable to enter our own local competition on my home green.
