The last medal of the 2012 Games...

Imagine a soldier caught behind enemy lines - in order to pass a message back to his commanding officer, he would have to fence 35 opponents, swim 200m, ride an unfamiliar horse, run 3 km and shoot 15 targets - all in 1 day. This is the sport of Modern Pentathlon - fantastically exciting and fast paced.
Talk about managing a project with solid deadlines...This was getting involved with Modern Pentathlon in a whole new way. I'm not a huge fan of horses for a start - let's be honest - one end bites and the other end kicks.
Armed with the title of Field of Play Group Leader and a cast of almost 40 people (approximately 3/4 of them volunteers), work commenced at 6 PM. As the people of Greenwich slumbered blissfully on, work progressed. Those lucky enough to sleep until 7 AM the following morning were presented with a prepared and complete FoP upon waking.
There were two finals over two days, with a Medal Ceremony in each. Team GB was represented by Nick Woodbridge and Sam Weale in the mens event and Mhairi Spence (current World Champion) and Samantha Murray in the women's event.Samantha Murray, starting the race in 4th place, overtook twice, the second time on the last lap. As she came into the stadium in 2nd place, with 300m to go, the roar of 20,500 excited spectators carried her all the way across the line – the last medal of the Games, a Silver to Team GB.
In a world dominated by TV viewing figures, during competition, under the watchful eyes of 20,500 spectators and millions of TV viewers around the world, my team executed split second transition, enabling the sport to unfold to schedule - I am so proud of all of them.
Having spent almost 20 years in Professional Motorsport, I wasn't entirely convinced about the Olympics. Well, I stand corrected.
The Olympics is huge, mega, amazing, fantastic and spectacular. The scale, logistics and planning involved are almost inconceivable. The emotion of the event is tangible, real and amazing. In all my working years, I have not come across a more enthusiastic and dedicated bunch of people.
Perhaps the lesson to take away from this is that there are no extraordinary people - there are only ordinary people, who are capable of achieving extraordinary things, because they set their minds to the task at hand.

AnAthlete at Modern Pentathlon
(Startingfrom Horse riding)
I was now in 5thplace after the fencing and swimming. I thought I had seen it all asone of my competitors set the Modern Pentathlon Olympic Record butthen I did horse riding.
You cannot winthe competition in horse riding, but you can certainly lose it. As Ijumped on my horse, Glen Gold, my arms were shivering as I took holdof the reins. I started trotting up to the starting point and I knewI could not let my country down. As I rode near to the jump I gotmore nervous by the second. I jumped over it only just missing thepoles. One jump down, eleven more to go!
I can'texactly remember which jumps I knocked poles down on but my overallpenalties where sixty out of one thousand two hundred. That was fortyobstacle penalties and twenty time penalties. That put me into 4thplace after the fencing, swimming, and horse riding.
Ontothe combined event. I started in 4thso I started ten seconds after the leader. I ran straight up to theshooting range and shot at the targets as fast and as accurately as Icould. I carried on running still in 4thplace and out the arena. As I came back in I was in 1stplace but sadly I got overtaken on the shooting. On the third lapround I overtook Margaux Isaksen and Yane Marques with the help ofthe roaring crowd. I did my final lap and stayed in that position.Finally I ran up to the finish line and crossed it in 2ndplace! I got beaten by Laura Asadauskaite but that didn't matter, Igot a silver medal for my country.
After witnessing a remarkable last medal of the 2012 Games, a Silver in Modern Pentathlon, a 10 year old wrote the above story.
