Olympic precision

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:

Olympic lows and highs

Hello! Second day at Sochi saw an amazing Men’s Downhill – heartbreak for my favourite skier Bode Miller, but an incredible run for Austria’s Matthias Mayer. A fine win for Jamie Anderson in the Women’s Slopestyle and a bronze medal for GB’s Jenny Jones. What a day! Here are my drawings:

Olympic grace

Hello! Suddenly a complete change of direction! A must see though – the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The first day has seen some fantastic sport but my first post looks at Ice Dancing from the Team Figure Skating event. Some lovely routines – very romantic and in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, very appropriate! Here are my drawings:

The Ashes Down-Under: Day 4, The Gabba

G’Day! The fourth day of the First Test between Australia and England saw the last throes of the match conclude with the inevitable joyous victory for Australia and miserable defeat for the visitors. Wonderful bowling again by Johnson saw him take another 5 wickets to hold England to a score of 179 runs, thus negating the need for the 5th day. He deservedly took the title of, the man of the match. Ripper! Here are my drawings:

The Ashes Down-Under: Day 3, The Gabba

G’Day! The third day of the First Test between Australia and England was bathed in gold and green, with delight for the home fans. In spite of a good start for the English bowlers, the Aussies batted on to a terrific score, declaring at 401 for 7. This left England’s batsmen with an almighty target of 561 runs to win. Not Pygmalion likely! Highlights were for captain Michael Clarke and opening bat, David Warner who both scored centuries Here are my drawings:
