Olympic football

Some lucky Sibford teenagers enjoyed a trip into London yesterday to join 70,000 other people in watching an Olympic football match at Wembley: South Korea v. Gabon. We had terrific seats giving a commanding view of the whole pitch. The match was a slightly disappointing 0:0 draw but our teenagers more than made up for it with their energy, amusement and good spirits. Some of the crowd seemed rather bemused by the vociferous support for Gabon coming from our section in a mixture of Russian, Italian and Spanish. We finished the day with a Greek meal in a local restaurant. Transport arrangements were flawless and everyone was safely back in the school by midnight, hopefully with memories of London 2012 that will last a lifetime:
