The Olympics 1908

I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one glued to the TV while the Olympics took over London, from Jessica Ennis winning the gold to Usain Bolt just being plain amazing, I was obsessed.

I found these images of the 1908 Olympics held in London and just had to share them, I love them and want to be part of the high jump, I will have to perfect my pointed toes though...

What was your favourite Olympic moment? Chad Le Clos's Dad perhaps...?

  2. Long time no speak! I've been AWOL from blogging for far too long, but now I'm back. YAY! Your Blog's looking awesome as ever :)

    Love these photos! So different to today it's crazy. Love what the women wore - probably not very functional though...
