11 days to go and everything is smoothly on its way leading up to London 2012. Our Olympian themed window is going for gold, and so are all the athletes packed into the West Midlands, preparing for their moment in the spotlight.
Earlier this week Cannock Men’s Hockey first team played the Pakistanni Olympic team as a preparation match. The team have, like many others been based close to Wolverhampton, before they move into the Olympic village. Within Wolverhampton, the Dominican Boxing Team warm up at the Wolverhampton Amateur Boxing Club.
But the real gold medallists in the lead up to the Olympics is Birmingham University and Alexander Stadium who will be hosting the Jamaican and USA athletes. Extra long beds have been brought in to accommodate the likes of the extra-long, world record holder, Usain Bolt. At a massive 1.96 meters (6ft 5inches), this giant will be warmly welcomed into Great Britain to compete alongside American athlete, Tyson Gay and fellow Jamaican, Asafa Powell.
Here in store we cater for Olympian sports such as athletics, hockey, football, swimming, boxing, tennis, badminton, marathon running, basketball and many others. Pop in to talk to the team about any services we offer and the wide variety of sports we supply in sore and on line.
Back Great Britain on our mission to get more people active for longer.
And some medals would be nice too…
