If like me you were glued to the tv last night for one of the most enthralling and emotional nights of British sporting history, then cries of “Jess has done it!” and “Go Mo!” will also have resounded in your living room! With six gold medals for Team GB in one day, yesterday was indeed Super Saturday.
I think one of the things that warmed my heart the most was the way the whole nation appears to be behind the multicultural lot that make up Team GB. A mixed race woman, an Englishman from Milton Keynes and a Muslim immigrant were amongst the athletes that did Britain proud yesterday. Yes these are the faces that are representing us on the world stage for London 2012. Hopefully every household across the country felt proud to be British last night.
