|Yeah, me too. Sounds like fun.|
There's a girl who was in my year at school competing in the Olympics.
Ah, Rebecca Adlington. I met her a couple of weeks ago. Infact, I was lifeguarding over her! Was f*cking awesome. Was she in your year then?
Didn't think she was only 19, it was on a Sunday where she came in for a swim with Sherwood's swimming club, where she used to swim as a kid. Man, she's f*cking fast on straights but her turns are short of abismal. If she had nailed her turns she would probably be the World record holder, judging by he fact her PB is only a quarter of a second less than the current World record. When she'd finished there was a flood of people jumping over the seats to get her autograph and get pictures with her, was right hectic. She then shook my hand after everything was sorted, I wished her the best of luck and she was on her way.
I was also lifeguarding a local Gala at the swimming bath I work at, and there's this 11 year old girl who broke SIX of Rebecca Adlington's club records, and she's already in the county's A-squad, so watch out for her in the future. Muscularmatt
, I didn't go through hours of hard work, single handed table formatting, writing down EVERY country in the Olympic games names down on a piece of paper for The Country game, for you to come in here and plead for everybody to Boycott the Olympics. China's political ongoings should have nothing to do with the Olympics, and therefore we should all enjoy them as much as previous Olympic games.
I can't believe how much I'm having to work lately, it's nearing 50 hours a week because of the six week holidays. And it's a part time job! And then there's other commitments, like spending time with the girlfriend, my other job, drving lessons and football training three times a week! I'm definitely struggling to get things sorted before the Olympics. I had been planning on making tables for the Athletics results, and then posting in here everything else which has been going off on a daily basis, a sort of update for the ill-informed. But as you an probably guess, this is going to be a tall order.
If anybody wants to make me a table for the Athletics track and field events results (making tables for every event would be suicide), I would greatly appreciated it. The Olympic schedule is here, by the way-http://results.beiji...ule/index.shtml
You can also find results there as well.
Oh, and I've drew TD and Ottae's teams out,
Not to bad to be honest, much better than most of the country's other competitors have ended up with, put it that way. LESS THAN 21 HOURS TO GO!
