I was tagged in a meme about the Olympics by Emmys Mummy and as I'm really looking forward to the inspiration I know that everyone will get from the athletes who will be taking part I thought what better way than to talk about Sport over here on Pippa World! Plus it means I get to show these great little Team GB Lego Minifigures which I saw in the Lego shop at the weekend and a lovely PR kindly sent me one of too!
If every day tasks were Olympic events what would you get a gold medal in?
At the moment I would have to say it would be the 100m Chase. As in chase Big Boy around the house to get him to have his blood test and injection. Or maybe the Going to the Gym event would give me a gold! I'm still going everyday.
As a child (or now even) did you excel at a particular sport and if so which one?
Not really, I did love Orienteering and I was quite good at it but I was never going to be the best. Although I did quite well the first year and was in the top ten in the county.
Michael Phelps (swimmer) or Michael Johnson (runner) which sport appeals to you more?
The running, but long distance running. I can swim and I love swimming (especially in the sea) but running was something I could do without having to think and I can't wait to lose enough weight that I will feel comfortable running again.
How fast can you get out of bed and ready to go out the door if you miss the alarm and sleep in?
I could do it in five minutes. Jump out of bed, run down stairs go to the toilet, have a quick wash and brush of my teeth, run back upstairs get me clothes on back downstairs and out the door. However that would mean not taking the children with me, or Flyfour and I'd look a little slummy!
What fantasy sport would you like to see made into an Olympic event?
I would have to say I would love to see speed weeding. They could hold it in my garden...
Claim to fame time - Have you ever met an Olympian and who was it?
I'm pretty sure I have, but I honestly can't remember! Is cricket an Olympic sport? I might have met a cricket player. Oh hang on I met Greg Searle but I didn't know who he was, but I blame Sally Whittle for that.
What event in past Olympics can you remember most vividly?
Erm. Yeah. I don't actually remember any of the Olympics ever.
Tuning in at home, not for me or tickets clamped ready in sweaty palms?
I have some tickets thanks to Coca Cola but we will be tuning in at home/the Gym and watching whilst working out ourselves!
Who do you think most deserves a gold medal (any walk or life not just Olympians)?
My sister, she has four children under five and cream coloured carpets.
I am not passing the flame to anyone because I think that just about everyone has done this Meme, however if anyone wants it let me know and I'll pass it on to you!
