Boris was on good form, equating the five Olympic rings to the five hoops that London would have to jump through to deliver a top class set of games. I was then lucky enough to attend a reception with some of the Olympians from the 1948 London Games, Christine Ohuruogu from the 2008 team and a number of medal prospects for the 2012 games.
I had a good chat with Ken Parr from the small bore rifle team (didn’t we always used to win that) and members of the flat water kayak team. What a great bunch. I find it very easy talking to sports people (being and sad sporting wannabe myself) and I genuinely enjoyed the conversation. I’m increasingly looking forward to the 2012 games and watching the people who I have had the honour of meeting so far.
