Olympics 2012: Fine Zen of Fencing

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with the latest sports news from the Olympics. Congratulations to Lizzie Armitstead and Rebecca Adlington for winning Team GB’s first gold medals, and to the men’s footie team for their first win too.

Team GG

Team GG noticed great greenygrey performances by the Lithuanian swimming team (tracksuits and caps), and also the Italian synchronised divers (swimsuits).

But it was the fencing that really got our attention on Day 2.

We found that just watching the fencing without sound was quite surreal. With the fencers looking grey a lot of the time, and green or red lights being used to show when the fencers scored, we thought it was quite reminiscent of the Greenygrey world, with Grey providing the foundation, and Green brightening it up at times.

Yes, some fine zen moments indeed.
