World Athletics and Werewolf of Year, van Wolfswinkel

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. It sure has been an exciting week and weekend of sport, and we have the best of the greenygrey werewolf action here for you.

The World Championships athletics was great this week, with fabulous performances by some of the world’s best in Moscow. Shelley-Anne Fraser-Pryce, Usain Bolt and Mo Farah all won two individual golds, and the former two also won relay golds too.

Bolt and Fraser-Pryce of course starred for Team GG at London 2012, and new Team GG member Nick Symmonds collected a silver in the Moscow 800 metres.

Together, they showed the style, speed and stamina needed for a world-class werewolf.

Premier League Kicks Off

The English Premier League also kicked off this weekend, and there was one story that totally over-the-moon eclipsed all others in the Greenygrey world.

Yes, Ricky van Wolfswinkel settled in immediately to his new greenygrey home; and also home to Alan Partridge; scoring the crucial second equalising goal on his debut for the Norwich canaries in their 2-2 draw with the Everton toffeemen.

If he continues in this vein he looks a certainty for the werewolf of the year award; once dominated by my human parallel and darts legend, Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Olympics 2012 Last Night of Athletics a Fitting Finale

Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, back with more sports reporting from Olympics 2012. I’ve got mixed feelings today, as it’s the last day of the great festival of sport, with the closing ceremony tonight. I hope it’s as greenygrey and good as the opening ceremony.

Saturday Olympics 2012 Round-Up

Saturday was another great day for Teams GB and GG. Ed McKeever started Team GB’s gold rush with canoe sprint gold. It was then Team GB versus Team GG in the boxing bantamweight final, as Luke Campbell took on John Joe Nevin, and we’re glad to say Campbell prevailed in a bout that did both teams proud.

The Olympic stadium then hosted another great night of athletics, with Mo Farah getting another gold for Team GB in the 5000 metres, doing an historic double after winning the 10,000 metres last week, while the Jamaican 100 metres relay team smashed the world record while winning gold for Team GG in the final event of the Olympics 2012 athletics programme. Here’s a great action shot of greenygrey duality in action, on the way to victory.

Yes, the last night epitomised the whole Olympics, passing like a dream fantasy, and I had to pinch myself to remind myself that Teams GG and GB are as real as me, Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, and the two teams have done so well so far in Olympics 2012.

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
