This weekend, G. and I took the train 3 hours south of London to Weymouth, the seaside town in Dorset, England and the site of Olympic sailing. The whole town was decked out in Union Jacks and buzzed with excitement.
The sailing events took place in a small and windy cove area called The Nothe.
We had tickets to the medals round of women’s match racing. Finland triumphed over Russia for the bronze medal race, and Spain beat out traditional sailing powerhouse, Australia for the gold.
After years of build up, London’s 16 days in the global spotlight come to an end tonight. What a wonderful two weeks it has been! It was a once-in-a lifetime experience to have lived in an Olympic city during an Olympic Games. Despite the crazy quirkiness of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, I think London did a great job as host, for both the visitors and the residents. Bravo!
