So in the UK, whenever we have a Gold Medal winner, the Royal Mail will paint a post box gold in the winning athlete's home city! In my home town, we are very lucky to be celebrating Ed Clancy's win in the cycling Team Pursuit! I feel very proud that we have a Gold Medal winner who trains down the road from where I live and am proud of all of Team GB. Last night Chris and I decided to visit the golden post box and take a picture for posterity.
|Ed Clancy - Amazing Gold Medalist!|
There are golden post boxes popping up all over Great Britain and it seems that I am not alone in being inspired. Everywhere I look there are new joggers, people blowing the dust off their bikes, unpacking long-forgotten swimming costumes and the gym is constantly rammed. The message of this Olympics is 'Legacy', to inspire future generations, and encourage everyone. It certainly seems to be working!
