mmadigital rounds up at the Olympics

August 10, 2012 10:48 am

Here at the mmadigital HQ we have been thoroughly enjoying the Olympic action. You may have noticed from our social media updates, we are really excited about all that the Olympics has had to offer. From the moment the Olympic torch passed us we have been busy keeping up with our favourite sports.

Key moments for us have included the athletics, from Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford all scooping gold medals to the outstanding Jamaican team and the speed of Usain Bolt. He really is like lightening!

We have all favoured different sports, from the rowing and the success of the women’s double scull to the hockey, diving and even the canoe slalom. It quite literally has been a fantastic Olympic Games.  One sport we have been really focusing on is the cycling.  Watching Bradley Wiggins winning his well deserved gold medal to the amazing wins from Sir Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton, Laura Trott and Jason Kenny to name but a few.

In fact, the more we talk about it the more amazing moments keep popping up.  Being third on the medals table under the USA and China shows the amazing determination of such a small island as Great Britain.

Keeping glued to the fantastic BBC coverage I think what it has highlighted to us in the mmadigital office is just how passionate, focused and professional we are as a nation.  If only everyone could be this focused and professional in their work.  It has certainly spurred us on to take part in mmadigital’s keep-fit-Wednesday.  We are all a relatively active bunch but we do spend a lot of time on our computers due to the nature of our work.  So, every Wednesday we have encouraged each other to take part in a sport or class that we wouldn’t normally do.  From kick-boxing to yoga, swimming to zumba, we are already starting to feel the benefits. Make sure you are following us on our social media to keep up with how we are getting on.

So, as we wind down towards the closing ceremony we can’t help but feel a little sad that it will soon be over.  The London 2012 Olympic Games have really been far greater than we ever imagined.  Team GB has done us proud.

What are your thoughts on the Olympic Games? Why not join in our conversations on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you have enjoyed the most and if it has inspired you to take up a sport?
