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.
