Golden Day for Teams GG and GB in Ungreenygrey Venues

Thursday was a golden day for teams GG and GB, reports Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams. Team GB started the gold flurry when Nicola Adams took the first female boxing gold medal ever; winning the flyweight division title at Olympics 2012. This was quickly followed by Team GG, which got its fourth gold of the games when Katie Taylor won women’s lightweight boxing gold.

Team GB then won its first taekwondo gold when Jade Jones won gold in the women’s 57kg division. Charlotte Dujardin also won dressage gold for Team GB in a more greenygrey location.

Team GG got a daily double when Usain Bolt did the sprint double by winning the 200 metres final, after winning the 100 metres last Sunday. Bolt was followed by Blake and Weir also representing Team GG.

Team GB has been solidly in third place since last weekend, and if Team GG was a country we would now be in about 14th place, just behind Japan and the Netherlands, who also have five golds.

Olympics 2012 Triathlon Conjures Up Thoughts of Greenygrey Evolution Theory

Howldy do, yes, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with watery Wednesday. And am I glad I waited for Wednesday, after scenes from yesterday’s Team GB Brownlee-dominated men’s triathlon were reminiscent of what Greenygrey evolution theory argues happened in a time now forgotten: when the first Greenygreys left the water and made their homes on land.

Brownlees Training in Greenygrey

Alistair Brownlee took gold for Team GB, and his younger brother, Jonny, took bronze, with Spain’s Javier Gomez taking silver. We’re delighted to report a greenygrey thread leading down from the Brownlees’ home and training environment in the Yorkshire Dales down to the Olympics 2012 medal ceremony. Firstly, here’s a greenygrey image of the Brownlees training in the Yorkshire Dales, taken from a BBC interview, where the greenygrey environment is described as ideal for triathlon training:

Olympics 2012 Greenygrey Triathlon Route

At the start of the race the BBC showed the triathlon route in glorious greenygrey:

Triathletes Reminiscent of Greenygrey Evolution Theory

With the triathletes wearing green caps in the grey water, the swimming provided some glorious greenygrey imagery. This was taken to another level when they emerged from the water, as it was totally reminiscent of what Greenygrey evolution theory (not to be mistaken for the Greenygrey creation myth) considers happened at the origins of our species, when the first Greenygreys left water for land. Here’s an image:

Greenygrey Takes a Back Seat for Triathlon Medal Ceremony

After playing a starring role for much of the triathlon, the Greenygrey was happy to take a back seat for the medal ceremony, and keep to the background:

Sorry, there’s no time for the swimming and cycling today, but we will use them tomorrow to discuss whether a lack of greenygrey in the aquatic centre cost the Team GB swimming team gold.

Jessica Ennis Leads Team GB Athletics to Olympics Golden Hour

Jessica Ennis completed the Olympics 2012 heptathlon on Saturday night as she began it on Friday morning, reports Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with an immaculate run to win another of the seven events. This time it was the 800 metres, following great runs in the 100 metres hurdles and 200 metres the day before. Ennis also reached her best in most of the field events, giving her a clear win in female athletics’ toughest event. To complete one of the most memorable hours in British sporting history, Greg Rutherford then won the long jump, and Mo Farah timed it to perfection to win the 10,000 metres. It was an hour British athletics fans will remember for the rest of their lives, and especially those at the stadium. And the Greenygrey was, as shown on the BBC

Team GB find Gold amongst the Greenygrey

Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. It was an exciting day for Team GB at Olympics 2012 yesterday, as Team GB found the golden trail amongst the greenygrey.

Helen Glover and Heather Stanning Rowing Gold

Team GB’s first golden day amongst the greenygrey started with Helen Glover and Heather Stanning dominating the women’s pairs rowing race from the greenygrey start:

Glover and Stanning comfortably maintained their early lead to the greenygrey end, and won at a canter.

Bradley Wiggins wins Time-Trial Cycling Gold

Fresh from his Tour de France historic victory, it seemed too comic-book that Bradley Wiggins would win the Olympic time-trial on home turf, but he was eleven seconds up in the first greenygrey quarter of the race.

Wiggins continued to increase his lead at that pace throughout the race, and was forty-two seconds up by the greenygrey end.

Michael Jamieson Unlucky not to Win Swimming Gold

After two comfortable golds it would have been nice for Team GB to win a close gold, but Michael Jamieson was unlucky in the men’s 200m breaststroke swimming final as he was edged out by Hungary’s Daniel Gyurta.

Jamieson broke the British record, and swam the fourth fastest time ever, but Gyurta, who is already the World Champion, broke the world record to edge out Jamieson by point-15 of a second.

The crowd at the aquatic centre gave Jamieson great support, and if it had been supplemented with a little greenygrey around the pool area maybe Jamieson would be the Olympic champion and world record holder today.

Congratulations to him for a great swim and the silver medal anyway.

Team GB Win Olympic Silver in Greenygrey Stonehenge

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, creator extraordinaire at the Greenygrey. There were no new medals for Team GG yesterday, but Team GB got a silver in the equestrian team event. I was captivated by the layout of the jumps, with the fences supported by British landmarks, such as Trafalgar Square lions (we’d have preferred wolves of course!) and postboxes.

Stonehenge at Olympics 2012

My favourite jump display was the triple Stonehenge themed jumps, which not only brought a little bit of the ancient world to the games, but also looked very greenygrey, as shown in this still from the BBC highlights:
