The Power of Sport!

01 October 2012

Just when you think the most significant sporting summer in British history is over, along comes the Ryder Cup with an incredibly dramatic climax which even left non-golfers gasping for breath. Wow, what an exciting fight-back, and the Ryder Cup showcased what a wonderful game golf really is!

Going back over a summer that was nothing short of dreadful weather-wise, the sports enthusiast was treated to a period we’ll never experience again. First up was the Spanish conquest at the Euros, followed by one of Roger’s finest displays at Wimbledon, then Ernie rolling back the years at the Open. All this stunning sport was just a warm-up before the most wonderful Olympics imaginable. The Paralympics were outstanding as well before Andy Murray’s fabulous maiden Grand Slam victory at the US Open. Then just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the Europeans staged the greatest comeback in Ryder Cup history. Brilliant!

The Olympics brought the country together and the feel-good factor was palpable. It will be a long while before we savour the atmosphere of this summer again, and I thought it’s been Britain’s finest hour since Winston used to strut his stuff while winning World War Two. These past few months have even had the non-believers in awe of the power of sport!
