Women's Football Olympic Bronze Goes To Canada

City of Coventry Stadium
The final Olympic event to be hosted in Coventry today was the Women's Football Bronze Medal match.  Canada beat France in the last minutes - completely against the run of play.  The photo above was taken on Friday when Canada beat Team GB for a place in the semi-finals.  There were hugs all round.  The photo below was taken today of Canada's chief supporter.  She was displaying her flag (with autographs) but needed a little help.  Coventry's finest to the rescue.  Wonderful!!!!!

PS.  Please note:  Sunshine, blazing sunshine!



Congrats to Canada, Oh Canada! I love the excitement & energy captured in these shots, not to mention that glorious sunshine :)

I am looking out the window to clear skies, Lulu. That lady (in photo) was so funny. She kept shouting to all the Canadian players...'high five, high five, we are so proud of you, high five'. Great to see. (Hope the interview with the person from Pasa went well :)
