Hello! Following on swiftly from one of the world’s oldest horse races, came one of the oldest rowing races – the battle on the Thames between the crews of Oxford and Cambridge Universities. It is an international event these days and its 160th running attracted a huge audience, not only on TV but every square-inch of land on the riverbanks and bridges lining the route. People must have glimpsed the boats for a few seconds as they went by. The skies were grey, the river choppy and for Cambridge fans, a slip in the water barely five minutes into the race sealed their team’s fate. Oxford took advantage and streamed home to victory. Here a my drawings:

Another great day of sporting excellence. No medals for Team GB but still wonderful performances by all athletes. Drawing so many sports makes for a different challenge from following one. For example with diving, I had to show the progress of the dive in the one drawing. It is two views of the same dive. Here are a few impressions some of the day’s incredible variety of sport.

But what a party? The Olympic Games has been wonderful so far – a delight. I’ve been drawing on and off since the Games started, but a bit late posting to say the least! I hope better late than never. There’s so much happening, it’s impossible to cover it all but I will do what I can. Here are some drawings to start with from an amazing few days in London.
