Let the games begin!Posted on 30th July, 2012 by Admin
Yes, the games have begun!! As a family we’ve enjoyed watching some of the Olympics over the last few days and being inspired by all the hopes, dreams and efforts that people have put in. Sports aside, even the creativity and detail put into the opening ceremony is seriously impressive!
Chatting with the little ones at Smallsports this morning, it was exciting to see their faces light up as they told me about how they’d seen some of the the Olympics over the weekend. It’s so cool to see them making connections – the flags, the medals, the huge range of sports – and seeing how the relays, long jump, javelin etc from Smallsports fit in the bigger picture. There’s nothing like the joy of seeing a child begin to dream, and you never know where those dreams may take you. A perfect example here above, the first Australian gold of this year’s games coming from the “surprise” win of our Australian women’s 4×100 freestyle relay team. (2)
I love that we can set up the next generation believing that they too can be champions, and have them start early taking on every challenge with confidence. After all, you never know unless you have a go!!
