This evening was the closing ceremony, I can’t believe it’s been nearly 10 days since we were first in this stadium. We are all in a very happy mood and looking forward to the party atmosphere.

Everybody is wearing their medals, we are all tanned and some sun burnt, most have recovered from the bug, and now we sit it this historic stadium exchanging stories. These memories will stay with us forever.

We listened to the speeches, watched the performances, I really liked Heather Small (“What have you done today to make you feel proud”) that seemed to catch the Olympic message.

After the Closing ceremony I left the team to join the family for what would be a few days of Sightseeing in Athens. So I said farewell to Sue (one of the coaches who looked after us girls), and the team and joined the family – Holiday time!!!!
