Who can't wait for the London 2012 Olympics?

           Big cheers for the synchronised swimmers. 

You don’t have to wait. It’s already happening right now. An annual competition for families has taken this year’s London Olympics as their theme, with tremendous results. Despite the torrential rain, they are all still standing - like true champions!
The weight-lifters are looking pretty strong this year, too (although a little de-fuzzing wouldn’t go amiss!)

Those rapids are really testing one competitor’s resolve!

Whilst Jenny’s just hanging about for a moment, warming up and waiting for the gymnastics to begin.

Team GB always does well in equestrian events.

And here’s another medal under the belt, in the 100 metres freestyle (I think his label’s showing).

Robin Baseball-Cap is going for gold in the archery.

Marion Maiden is determined to beat him though!

Here's a champ determined to give a knock-out performance.

Getting ready for that tricky turn…

                                 … Or taking a high dive.

He may have had ‘one for the road’, instead of the cycle lane!

                       But it’s this chap that’s for the high jump.

What a parade of world-class champions!


  1. Some of these are incredible Susan. Clearly a lot of effort has gone into them. Your comments(commentary) made me smile. I wouldn't like to have to pick a winner out of those.

  2. They always make me smile too. What an inventive bunch, eh?

  3. The photos are hilarious and the comments too!

  4. Thanks Marie. I thought so too.

  5. You must have had such fun putting this together!! We have the Olympic torch passing through St Allbans on Sun.

  6. Great fun. The worst part was creeping through people's gardens to photograph the 40+ life-sized entries. Yikes.
