Olympic Hockey Semi-Final

 Thursday 9 August 2012

The greatest Sporting moment (as a spectator) of my life! 

 I had secured 4 tickets to one of the semi-finals of the Olympic Hockey tournament and luck would have it that turned out to be the dream game in every respect. Great Britain against the Netherlands for a place in the Olympic final.

Leaving to the Olympic park early to enjoy the atmosphere, we had no idea what was to be on display hours later.  An orange onslaught of epic proportions. A structural yet beautiful dismantling of a nations hopes and dreams and a complete demolition of the host nation.

It all started with a beautifully sunny morning...







What a sight!


The Orange Army

National Anthems



It ended 9-2


Here the entire game...
