Happy One Year Anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Games

“Just looking at it, under the flags, it looked like he was going to get touched out by Magnussen, and (Adrian) got his hand on that wall, and that was just an incredible moment. He’s such a nice guy, too. I felt for him and he was ecstatic, so that was a really inspiring swim to watch.”

Before I close, I want to link Stephen Hawking’s words about changing perceptions across multiple dimensions from the ethereal Opening Ceremony, to the words of a five-year-old called George Glen. A few days ago, George was reading a book entitled “Treasure” with his mum, Emma, my daughter Gaëlle’s best friend.

The first page showed a man with an eye patch, a hook for a hand, a parrot on his shoulder and a wooden leg. Emma asked George who the man was, expecting him to say “a pirate”. But he said, “Well, he only has one leg; he must be an athlete.”
