Last Saturday I won the lucky sod gold medal, by a country mile.
By the power of a very lovely brother-in-law, we got tickets to one of the warm up events in the new Olympic stadium. It was University athletics, to be followed by 'celebrity antics'. When the tickets arrived, they didn't come with a plan of the stadium, so we didn't know where we would be.
We wandered in, found the right section, came down the steps and sat down to this view:
We were on the Very Front Row.
If the long jump ladies had done particularly well they would have landed in our laps.
Lucky gold medal? I graciously accept!
