Looking forward to the London 2012 Olympics

The Olympics are coming to London soon. I cannot wait because I am going to the Olympics. I have a ticket to see the men’s handball. I don’t really know what handball is but I would like to see it because they might explain what it is and I will get to see the new Olympic Park in London too. The basketball arena where the men’s handball is played was built especially for the Olympics.

I am going to buy a special t shirt especially for the Olympics. I am going to stay at my Nan’s house the night before the handball then I am going to go on a train to the Olympics. I will take my camera with me to take pictures of very exciting things and I will put them on my blog for you.

I might go to Bedford and see the Olympic torch on Sunday. Different people will be running around Bedford holding the Olympic torch. I am going early in the morning so I can get a good space to see it. It is special because when it gets to London, they’ll use it to light a special candle so the Olympics can start.

Lots of people will get medals. The youngest person ever to win a medal was a thirteen year old child. At school, we are having our own Olympic-themed sports day. We are competing against lots of different schools to win a certificate, but not a medal. I am looking forward to the penalty kick-off. It was very fun when I tried it out last time we practised.

What are you looking forward to the most about the Olympics?
