  1. I’m going to be honest – can’t wait for opening and closing ceremonies. Disclaimer 1: my best friend is the stage manager of the event (which is so awesome I am going to the fuss of telling all of you, strangers, because I am so damn proud – he is currently on a mission to get me Danny Boyle’s autograph!!). Disclaimer 2: I’m a massive Danny Boyle fan. Disclaimer 3: I’m hanging to see the music performances at the Closing!

    Now for the actual games. Mr Beckala absolutely loves the cycling (we’ve just booked a trip to Adelaide to watch the Tour Down Under in Jan and have plans to go to Le Tour one year) so we will watch the road cycling. Swimming – probably if there’s nothing else on. Athletics the same. But if there is a interesting other option I’ll go with that !!

    Personally – Gruen Sweat will be the other Games highlight for me!
