Pro-Am is running the sports massage course for the Hull York Medical Students again this year. Keep posted as i will be needing practice models for them.
What an awesome 24 hours, i picked up a coach at leeds at 8am got to London for 12.30pm. I had to go and pick up my ticket at the French headquarters near London Bridge meaning i had my first experience of London underground. It also gave a great opportunity to see Tower Bridge with the Olympic Rings. Once i got my tickets it was straight to the Olympic Park and WOW! considering the amount of people there was no ques for anything, plenty of toliets and water points as it was a hot day. I got to see all the venues in the Olympic Park and the atmosphere was great as you could hear all the cheers from each stadium.
Athletics started at 7pm and we got to sit on the back straight in the middle so we could see pretty much everything, it was just deciding what to watch as there was so much going on. The womens hammer was great i got to see our British thrower Sophie Hitchon and although she would have wanted to throw further the crowd was fully behind her. The hammer was won in an Olympic record. The mens pole vault was just mind blowing out British athlete Steve Lewis got the British record. We got to see the womens 1500m and 5000m final, the mens 4x100m heats Britain were disqualified. The highlights on the track was the Bahama’s winning the 4x400m final their first ever gold and witnessing the womens 4x100m world record been broken by the American team.
Overall it was amazing experience, for more photos visit my Facebook Page
Pro-Am will be closed on Friday 10th August due to being in London to watch the athletics, tune in later to see photos
Wed 8th August just watched (on tv) Sophie Hitchon qualify for the womens hammer final which i get to see on Friday, really exicited now!
The Olympic torch passed through Scarborough on Monday and i was lucky enough to slot some time off work to go and watch a performance down at the Open Air Theatre. We were lucky with the weather it only rained a little and when the tourch arrived it was glorious sun shine. I was also glad that the streets were full of people eager to see the torch as this means everyone is starting to get into the Olympic spirit.
Don’t forget the British Olympic Trials are this weekend and will be shown on TV Saturday aftrenoon. This year i think is going be the most competitve trials for a long time. There will be alot of excitment for those athletes making the Olympic team but in some events there are too many with the A standard meaning some are not going be selected.
Keep an eye out for Richard Buck a 400m runner from York fingers crossed he has made the relay squad, he will have to do a big pb to get in for the individual as well as come in the top 3 this weekend.
