Will's blog is back! - Day One in the London Olympic Camp
Monday 16 July 2012
Four years passes all too quickly. Memories of arriving (for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games) in Hong Kong (it was raining) remain fresh in my mind; today I arrived in London (it was not raining....honestly..) for the London 2012 Olympic Games. It is, after all, another Games, another Olympics, another competition – albeit under the auspices of the IOC, not just the FEI. If I am truthful, yes, another competition but one that has not been out of my mind since 6th July 2005. So, cutting to the mustard, the next few weeks are a journeys end.
I can also recall leaving a lunch the day before I flew to Lexington for the 2010 World Equestrian Games; the departing morale booster from a fairly senior member of one of the Disciplines was “I hope it goes well out there as there are plenty of people back here with their knives out for you if it does not”.......that was....different!
Sentimental rubbish over. Well this is my third Olympics (I am a newcomer in comparison to many within equestrian)... you do not believe it is my third? Well please see proof..... I have three Olympic wash bags... photographic evidence.............
