FEATURE: So Proud of Team GB!!!

Over the last 16 days I have never been more prouder to be British. I honestly never thought that Team GB would do so well in the London 2012 Olympics however I was proven wrong so many times. Each time a British Olympian won a medal whether it was gold, silver or bronze; I always cheered for them and sang the national anthem when someone won gold for Team GB. I am proud of all the British athletics especially Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis and Greg Rutherford. I have to say it was inevitable that Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah was going to win something however the biggest surprise for me was Greg Rutherford. After what happened to him at the Beijing Olympics back in 2008, I didn’t even expect him to participate let alone win.

Mr. Mo Farah has now become Britain’s favorite Olympian after he won 2 gold medals in the men’s 5000m race. Jessica Ennis came first in a multiple of events during the women’s heptathlon games. She got the highest points out of all the athletes with 6,955 points instantly putting here first place. Greg Rutherford came first when he scored a impressive 8.31 metres in the long jump tournament. Andy Murray won the men’s singles tournament against Roger Federer who was playing for Switzerland. This made Murray the first British Olympian to win a men’s single tournament at the Summer Olympics.
