Monkey at the the London 2012 Olympics
Today was the final of the “Extra Super Skinny Lightweight” weightlifting contest.
I was representing Team GB in this event.
As the only cuddly toy entering the Olympics this year, I had no opponents! To win the Gold Medal, I just had to lift the 1.5 kgs weight.
With a week of intense training, I was confident that I could lift the 1.5 kgs weight and take the Olympic Gold Medal.
I was ready…. and on live TV.
The whole country was watching me.
I gave my best but my best wasn’t good enough as I dropped the weights.
The weights landed on top of my wee head.
I was hurt!
The Team GB vet assessed the bump to my head and sent me to bed to recover.
I was given a damp cloth to ease my bruise.
My Olympic dream was over – I failed!
On twitter I wrote to my fans:
“I came to the Olympics with all I had but my best was not enough. I am sorry to let you all down.”
– The End –
