After 6 years of waiting, it’s so close!
Competition officially starts today (women’s football kicks off in Cardiff later) but the Opening Ceremony is on Friday evening.
I can’t wait to see what we’ve come up with. We can’t hope to match the Beijing Games for sheer spectacle, so there’s the usual British attitude that it will be rubbish in comparison. I’m quite positive about it though. Most of the details have been kept under wraps and I think we’ll end up with an Opening Ceremony to really showcase the UK to the world. After all, it’s the biggest tourism advert you could wish for!
I’m looking forward to my events, obviously, but also to watching some athletics, swimming and cycling on tv. I know I’ll be sucked in by pretty much anything that’s on!
What are you looking forward to?
