So after all the worries about economic sustainability, environmental impact and the debatable use of farm animals during the opening ceremony, after all the sadness about Nadal’s knees and the long-time grudge about figure roller skating not being included, it’s about time to relax and enjoy the sports.
Personally, I’ll be rooting for a bunch of amazing athletes, check them out.
Italian Fabio Scozzoli, breaststroke specialist (you see what I mean)
British Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro, dressage (incredible Kur)
the Italian WAG team, in particular beam specialist Carlotta Ferlito (she’s really competitive, wait and see)
Bulgarian gymnast Iordan Iovtchev, my lord of the rings of course (I may have mentioned him before)
So it’s two men, two women and a horse.
