I went to the Chandler pool today to watch James swim in a boys school swimming championships.
It is the second time I have been to watch and I just love sitting in the stands feeling like it is 1982.
My main memory is Tracy Wickham winning gold for the 400m and 800m.
Oh and who could forget the Kangaroo who winked at you whilst motoring around QEII stadium....I thought she was gorgeous.
I wonder what happened to Matilda??? Anyone know?
James didn't win any of his races but I was so proud of him!
As a little fella he used to look like he was riding a bike in the water instead of doing any form of swimming kick.
So my big boy has come along way!
It bought a tear to my eye when he gave me a wave each time before his race.
Good on you Jamesy!!!
|Terrible Photo, but here he is ready to do breaststroke in lane (6)|
What are your memories of 1982?
