a draw! with an Olympic champion!

We didn’t get tickets for the Olympics.

Spurs Fan didn’t get accepted for the torch relay.

That doesn’t mean we miss out on the Olympic excitement.

This week an Olympic champion came to visit Spurs Fan’s school. After weeks of organising, poster making and talking about values, Spurs Fan got to compete against an Olympic champion He was undefeated.

(I’m not meant to mention that the sport was wheelchair basketball; not the sport of the champion. Oh, look, a picture just appeared.)

They made the local news website. If you click (and you can tolerate a Minister talking about Minister-y things) you’ll see a whole school hopping along with Jonathan Edwards, children trying out paralympic activities, and two middle aged men missing a basket.

  1. Wow that’s impressive! Competing against Jonathan Edwards. And Spurs fan got a lot of tv coverage -doing things in the background of the interviews. Could new friend Jonathan Edwards not pull torch relay strings???

what do you think?
