Saturday 4th August.  The day we went to the Olympics - with tickets!!

 Arriving at the park.
 In front of the main stadium.
We met up with Alice who had arrived to do her volunteering in the water polo.  We waited ages to go in the Coca Cola tower, which was a waste of time except for at the very top they took our picture holding the torch.
We saw  Dani King, Joanna Rowsell and Laura Trott win the Woman's Team Pusuit race.

The velodrome was very warm, they have to keep it hot for the cyclists, I was pleased about that as I expected it to be cold and air conditioned, but it was lovely.  It was also absolutely deafening when the crowd cheered and shouted as the teams raced.  So exciting, and even better when you understood what the races were and what was happening.

Oh Yes!  Paul and Stella McCartney were in the audience as well..........
