You know the guy that lives and breathes sport….talks about it….. knows all about the footy scores from the weekend… all the players names, position and stats…. but also knows that West Nowhere has just beaten North Somewhere in 8th division soccer in the Scottish Highlands and that has kept them out of being demoted to 9th division…..
That’s the guy who really loves his sport.
So when it comes to the big sporting events like an Olympic & Paralympic Games, we eat and breathe it, up all night watching the live scores and the replays and channel flicking through the many different events.
A zombie by day and glued in at night….
An Olympic & Paralympic Games is our version of Christmas – sensational.
So on the 21st July 2021 when the IOC president, Thomas Bach, announced that Brisbane would host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games we were pretty excited to the point where it will go down on the memory bank, right next to the date of my wedding and my wife’s birthday (dates to dare not forget……)
Olympics to us is 24 hour sport of the highest quality and the greatest of entertainment.
It is action packed, excitement plus, things happening everywhere.
– and they have said that they will attend as many events as possible, and when they are not at the games, they will be aiming to watch it all on the big screens at home, so they don’t miss anything….
Okay, so we may be exaggerating a bit but this is definitely a major highlight for us Queenslanders.
We spoke to 2 of our Directors – Paul Jones & Craig Wood who have that sport loving mentality and have connection with the big Games events.
We go back in time firstly before we talk more about the 2032 Olympics……
