We’re into it now, we’ve already medaled but what I didn’t see coming was how much non-Games fun there is.

Today I played street hockey for the first time.  Games are spontaneously popping up.  

What I also didn’t expect was teh mood.  I understand now why people follow the Games around the world.  To be surrounded by this many genuinely happy people is rare.  

Ask anyone a question and get back a thoughful response, and taht is why we’re universally loved, and why I’m proud that’s what the world is meeting here.
