Olympic Thrills and spills

Hello! Back to sporting action – a selection of thrills and spills. Whether indoors on the ice or outside in the sunshine or even in snowflakes the size of dinner-plates, they’re all wonderful to see! Here are my drawings:

Olympic Sunshine

Hello! The past three days have been so packed with sport, I confess to playing catch up! Part of my problem is that I’ve been distracted by the beauty of the mountains and scenery at Sochi – very, very beautiful. The weather was glorious at the weekend, today there is rain but either way, the mountains are breathtaking. Here are my drawings:

Olympic Ice Gold

Hello! Day 7 was unique for British sports fans. On St Valentine’s Day 1984, the Gold Medal for Ice Dance was won by Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. 30 years on, also on St Valentine’s Day, the Gold Medal for Women’s Skeleton was won by Elizabeth Yarnold. Both events breathtaking and both brilliant. Amazing achievements that we’ll remember here for a long time to come. Here are my drawings:

Hello! Day 5 began in glorious sunshine for the Women’s Downhill event. A great course put all to the test but the outcome was a gold medal for two women, Dominique Gisin of Switzerland and Tina Maze of Slovenia – who flew down the run in 1:41.57. Wonderful! Here are my drawings:

Hello! Day 4 began with another incredible contest in the air with Ski Slopestyle. Ladies first and all GB fans watching Katie Summerhayes who put in a great performance at her first Olympics. A fine win for Canada’s Dara Howell. By complete contrast, the curling continues and the beginning of the half-pipe featuring the legendary Shaun White. It’s another engrossing day! Here are my drawings:

Olympic thrills and spills!

Hello! Third day at Sochi saw an amazing Men’s Short-track contest. Amazing progress by GB’s Jack Whelbourne only to see him fall in the final but wonderful achievement for Canadian Charles Hamelin, 3rd Gold for him. Also great mogul skiing and ice hockey and still more – phew! Another great day! Here are my drawings:
