All through the Olympics I’ve found myself grabbing my copy of the Official Olympic Programme, which details each and every sport in the back. It’s been an invaluable source of information, and is a treasure-trove of names. The tagline for London 2012 is Inspire A Generation, and on each page dedicated to each sport is a mini-feature of a so-called star of tomorrow of Team GB.
Some of their names are downright interesting, and it’s an insight into the types of names in the Team GB of tomorrow:
Anastasija, 18 (Synchronised Swimming)
Dominick, 17 (Gymnastics)
Fiona, 25 (Water Polo)
Gemma, 19 (Beach Volleyball)
Jermaine, 17 (Volleyball)
Kenta, 20 (Mountain Bike)
Leonora, 25 (Rowing)
Matthias, 18 (Football)
Mervyn, 27 (Javelin)
Ranvir, 17 (Wrestling)
Sonny, 18 (Weightlifting)
Remember how the Olympic cauldron was lit by 7 unknown athletes-of-tomorrow, picked by the greats of British sport? Their first names were Adelle, Desiree, Callum, Jordan (m), Katie, Aidan & Cameron.

For those wondering about what type of cuisine Rosa’s served (featured in last week’s post), it’s Thai.
