Like millions of people throughout the world, I have been transfixed for the past two weeks by the Olympic Games in London.

Being British, I am naturally proud of Great Britain’s success in the games, the most successful in terms of gold medals since 1908.

Watching the athletes perform, one can only admire their feats of performance, the dedication and hard work that has gone into achieving Olympic success. One might be forgiven that these sporting heroes are one-dimensional personalities, single-mindedly devoted to their chosen sport to the exclusion of everything else.

The Guardian newspaper presented some of Britain’s medal winning competitors in a slightly different light that goes to show these people have a fun-loving side just like the rest of us.

Brilliant or what? I think so and this video makes me even more proud to be British.
