Skeleton Bob

A winter Olympiad poem, inspired by the Gb team

I watched in awe as off they flew

Down the run of ice clear blue

On a craft to generate speed

Carving through ice quickfast was the need

As excited crowds they passed on by

They cheered them on as athletes did fly

And they did this more than once or twice

Navigating track all covered in ice

Aiming to make the fastest time drop

Running through finish line before they did stop

And repeating the task to achieve bronze thru to gold

To beating the clock in the ice and the cold

The Runner (Paralympic)

A tale on the Paralympian, Johnnie Peacock – Dedicated to all the Athletes at @ParalympicsGB taking part in the Rio Olympiad

It’s not just the short burst of speed

It’s not the ability for opponents to fear your name

It’s not the fancy kit that makes you fast

 

No –

Its all that work that you put in

(Not only in the training gym)

The time you give up to make you win

 

How far you go – it’s down to you

but at home we’re all cheering  the things that you do

in front of our TVs were all stuck like glue

 

So when you look down the Golden Track

when the pistol sounds – there’s no looking back

Chasing those medals and records of old

 

(Bronze, Silver and of course Gold)

Capturing that star

In response to Reach

 

Ready Team ? its time for your moment in the sun.

Everyone is cheering you on – the prize is in sight

As you enter the arena – its fever pitch as

Cohorts of fans – push you towards your ultimate goal

Handling that precious medal of Bronze, Silver or Gold

 

(Time to capture that star!)
