My personal top moments of the Olympics this year:
- 🥇Anna Kiesenhofer’s amazing upset win in the women’s cycling road race. She led from the start, and though her win came from the Dutch forgetting she was there, it still took a massive effort just to back herself in and work hard.
- 🥈Qatar’s Mutaz Essa Barshim and Italy’s Gianmarco Tamberi sharing a gold medal in the high jump. Olympic spirit moment up there with Eddie the Eel.
- 🥉Watching 12- and 13-year-old kids rule the world in the skateboarding, and just the friendliness and camaraderie they all showed.
All told, I really enjoyed the Olympics, it made multiple COVID lockdowns that much more bearable and some great moments and ‘new’ sports (I’d never seen before).
