Training for the London 2012 Olympics – part 1
It is only ten days to the London 2012 Olympics.
As you may know, I had been selected by Team GB to represent Great Britain in the London 2012 Olympics.
I am representing my country in the “Extra Super Skinny Lightweight” weightlifting event.
I hope to win this event by lifting 1.5kgs. That is six times my own body weight. But, I am confident that I will be able to lift this weight and to win the Olympic Gold Medal.
I was selected by Team GB because I had lifted weights before in previous tournament when I was in the army. My personal best is lifting 1.25 kgs. That is better than what any Para can lift and double what the Royal Marines can lift.
I have ten days to prepare myself for the games that starts next week.
I am somewhat concern by the lack of security at the games. But I don’t need G4S to protect me from terrorists as I know Karate.
A professional athlete not only trains in the gym at 5am each day but also eat a special diet consisting of raw eggs for the extra protein. I have decided to eat six raw eggs a day from now till the games.
I might change my diet slightly by adding a curry sauce over my eggs for extra flavoring.
I went to the spare bedroom which will become my training gym for the next ten days.
I was going to use the Clean and Jerk method for lifting my weights.
With the weights on top of me, I couldn’t get up!
I was stuck and I had to wait for my Auntie to come home from work to help me up.
I had failed and I failed big time. But I still got nine more training days to get myself up to Olympic standard and to win that medal for my country.
To be continued….
