Joining my fellow competition winner Becky from Lakes Single Mum and the lovely Pippa from a Mothers Ramblings as well as the lovely PR ladies from Coca Cola we took our seats at the Olympic Stadium, seated a mere 9 rows from the front and with a fantastic view of the athletics proceedings. I was in awe at the size of Olympic Park itself and was very glad I had comfortable shoes on as there is a considerable amount of walking involved when you want to have every possible photo opportunity.
Spoilt for choice on what to watch first as in front of us we had discus, hurdles, running and the final of the mens high jump finals at the back of the stadium but clearly visible to the eye on on the huge screens surrounding the majestic stadium - the atmosphere in the stadium was electric and the roars and applause for all the competitors especially for Team GB is something that will stay with me for ever. The Olympic Torch was very close to us and a sight to behold, something that could never truly be portrayed on the television in my opinion.

I decided with so many athletes to watch I would just try and take in as much as I could. Here's some of the sights and history I saw being made that night.
