This is the third and final instalment of reports of the London 2012 Olympic Games wirtten by Chris Colclough G1VDP. Please see the full report by using the link below. Thanks Chris......
Sadly we are coming to the end of the Paralympic games, and the Olympic games in London 2012. And to the end of what has been a memorable event here in the UK. It has shown that people from ordinary walks of life can achieve their goals and become winners at all levels.
There have been tears of joy, of pain, and of failure. Smiles and laughter. And every other emotion that a human can show. Photographs in the media of a proud parent looking on as their child has just won a medal, photos of the atheletes - both able bodied and paralympians - crossing the finish line with the smiles of the winner and anguish of the loser, and one that as I have previously said will stand out for me of the british rower crossing the line and the sudden realisation of winning gold and saying to her partner "we just won the Olympics". But every competitor, in my book, is a winner for qualifying and taking part. Heroes all.
Well done to all involved with the London 2012 Games and thanks to all of the Ham Operators who we have worked with MO0OXO, GO1VDP, MO0KYI & GO4RCG and for their kind words and flowers!
