Chuckles Goes Olympic Final Round Up


So here it is, my last medal update for the Olympics and the last few days have seen us secure more medals and second place in the medal table ahead of China! 27 gold, 23 silver and 17 bronze, which beats our tally from London 2012. Brilliant performance from the Brits! There are a few rising stars to watch out for in the coming years. 

Gold for the amazing Mo Farah! Every time he came under pressure in the race, he dug in and found more to hold off the others. You could see how much Mo wanted that win! The guy is amazing to watch! Loved the cheeky moment on the podium when he produces the other gold from his pocket to wear!


Also retaining her Olympic title in boxing was Nicola Adams! Not only is she a superb athlete, that infectious grin of hers is very endearing!


Gold in the canoe sprint for the brilliant Liam Heath!


Another silver in the boxing for Joe Joyce!


Bronze for the womens sprint relay team!


Bronze for Vicky Holland in the triathlon! What a great performance!


And Bronze for Bianca Walkden in taekwondo! Great things are ahead for her I think!


There will be a few more Olympic posts in the next week or so looking at the highlights, low points and updating the drug issues surrounding the games. Look out for those! But for now, Chuckles has done her Olympics and needs a good sleep!!!

    1. There was certainly a lot to cheer! The next Commonwealth Games is Australia I think so I won't see much of it due to the time zone thing. Bummer!
