BUT... if I pass the TV while a race is on, I have to stop and watch to see who wins and watch their thrill on screen and share it here at home.
I'm lucky to be able to feel a thrill if Oz or GB wins ( I have dual nationality and all of my sports involvement has been Australian, eg Cricket support) so I have had quite a few opportunities to feel smug this time round.
BUT...what I'm really looking forward to is Robbie Grabarz in the High Jump. We are related! OK, my brother is married to Robbie's father's sister. Or...my brother is Robbie's uncle. Anyway that's the closest I've ever got to an Olympian. It's written in our diary and we shall stay home to watch on Tuesday.
Please watch too and wish him all the best as you do.
