I have come to the sad conclusion I will never be an Olympic athlete.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t have my own physical challenges. So rather than actually BEING an Olympian, I’ve decided, between now and the 2016 Rio Olympics, to attempt every single women’s Olympic event held during the 2012 Olympic games.
There’ll be some fairly easy ones- the 100m sprint shouldn’t be too difficult to arrange- but my goal is to do my best at all of them, to learn from people who know the sports, and to successfully complete everything, even if it’s not particularly quickly.
I’ll be blogging, videoing and photographing the whole experience, and hopefully, this Olympiad will be a really great opportunity to meet a whole bunch of new people, to learn about their passions, and to improve my own health along the way.
