Just found this canny cool video on YouTube of my discus competition in Beijing. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any of my club comp, but if you get to about 5 minutes into the above video you’ll see two of my three discus throws in Beijing, the 2nd throw was a season’s best and much futher than I expected to throw. This may well have been the last time I compete in discus but it was a good way to go out.
As promised, some cool pictures from Benfield Sports College’s Awards Evening. Thanks to Helen for sending some through, I particularly like the one on the left, mainly because I’m in it, and you can see my rocking microphone which makes me look like a pop star. Below is a picture of all the guest speakers on the night. Benfield really do know how to hold an awards ceremony and are also producing some great young sports stars.
Congratulations to Chris Cook, who married his lovely lady Erica on Saturday. I was in Yarm for the night time do and had a good time. I wish them all the best and hope Chris finds something to do now that he’s not going up and down a swimming for hours anymore. He’s been a credit to this area even though he’s a mackem.
It’s almost crunch time for me and my hip, have a meeting next week in Coventry to decide what to do. I’m on new painkillers as I can’t keep munching on diclophenic, I’m hoping they’re just as effective.
It’s crunch time for the Toon tonight, I’m on my pessimistic horse and reckon it’ll be a bore-draw, to win games you have to score goals, and to score goals you have to take shots at goal, that’s why we’re going down – because we don’t.
