I must admit to being genuinely excited at London winning the bid. I’m a huge athletics fan, in fact I’m off to the world championship trials in a week or so. So when they made the announcement – I literally jumped! Even though I’m from Manchester, this for me was the only chance the UK has of getting the bid – probably the only time it will be in the UK in my lifetime.
Next step – how to get cheap tickets, cheap accommodation, what to see, where to go. Ah the MoneySaving angle never stops. Although the depressing thought is I’ll be 40 when it happens!
PS GO LONDON
