The Greatest Day for British Sport Ever!

Wow! Where do I start? What a weekend to be British! Yesterday saw the greatest day for British Athletics ever, Our Rower's have had the greatest Regatta ever and as for Cycling no one compares. As a female I'm going to be biased here and go straight for the main girl, step forward Jessica Ennis the 5th greatest Heptathlete ever. What a woman, she was the face of British Athletics coming into the Olympics and greater men have crumbled beneath such pressure. She's performed with dignity and grace, a true professional and a true Lady. As an athlete, personality, Olympian, Icon and most certainly an inspiration to the Youth of today, if she doesn't sum up Danny Boyle's opening ceremony message I don't know what does. All I can say is we'd better be calling her Dame Ennis soon or I personally will be banging the door down at Buckingham Palace. We are now at the half way mark for London 2012 and if the sheer determination of our competitors hasn't left you with a lump in your throat or a tear in your eye then you have no soul and I have no words. Be inspired, be emotional, be impressed but most definitely be proud!
