Day Twelve: One Week To Go

With only one more week of both the Paralympics and London 2012 to go, you can start to look back on the last seven + years since London won the bid to host the 2012 Games and ask yourself a few questions; What were you doing when it was announced? What did you think? Did you expect London to win?

I can honestly say I have no idea what I would have been doing when it was revealed on the 6th of July 2005, I would have been 12 at the time and in my second year at high school, I can also say that I didn’t even think about it at the time and don’t even remember seeing the announcement.

Although every time I see the clip played back to me now I feel the hairs on the back of my neck rise and I feel that I’m really part of something special.

I found this on Twitter earlier today and quite I’d like to share it with you – “@TomDaley1994: It is just so amazing how inspiring all of the Paralympians are, competing with such grit and determination…heroes, all of you!”
