Like many of us I’ve watched hours of the Olympics on TV. Frankly I’ve been getting behind Team GB and getting behind with everything else in equal measure. But this time my cheer wasn’t for another success in the Gold rush. On this occasion I had finally managed to get a ticket via the London 2012 website for an event in the Olympic Park.
It’s funny – only half the team’s Golds have come from events in Stratford, but it is clearly the epicentre of activity, and I wanted to see the Park before the games ended. So a ticket for the women’s handball quarter final match in the Copper Box between Spain and Croatia was perfect.
