This is what Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, said when he saw the British Women's double sculls team on TV. (They ended up winning the Gold Medal). If you are interested, he writes a column in a London newspaper, the Telegraph at this link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/borisjohnson/
It has been wonderful to see all these young, shining hopeful faces competing in these Olympic Games. And to me, London has looked absolutely incredible. What a beautiful city in the world to have them, am I right? And the views that are shown around Great Britain don't even look real they are so lovely! Did you see the photo at the end of last week with the moon just behind the Olympic Rings on Tower Bridge? That was just so beautiful to see and if you missed that photo, I have it here for you!
Shine on, young gifted athetes, we bask in your glory and smile at your beauty, much as we do the moon.
