I've never thought of myself as a sports spectator; until the Olympic women's cycling road race!
Lizzie Armitstead zoomed by us at 500m before the finish line to win Silver, and as she won silver i realised that for the first time i was happy in the pouring rain. I am totally hooked now, and desperate to get tickets for the track race. Anyone?
Why i am liking Lizzie Armitstead:
- she is a veggie
- her comments on twitter https://twitter.com/L_ArmiTstead are engaging
- her interviews sound very down to earth
- she won SILVER!
