Olympic Fever

 

I have to admit it. It’s true. I am clearly suffering from POD (Post Olympic Depression!) The expectations and excitement surrounding the Olympics was so high, and yet it proved to be even better than we had hoped for. The vibe in London during the Olympic fortnight was really positive, and the atmosphere within the sports venues was electric. I was extremely lucky to witness some spectacular sporting events, and I’m so proud of our fantastic city and our inspiring sports men and women. I took some (ok, a lot!) of photographs during London 2012, which I hope may be of help to anyone else currently suffering from POD! Really can’t wait till the Paralympics starts! 🙂
