As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

Virtually every other event except discus was televised. As usual concentration was on fancy track events rather than field. Nolic

thanks nolic, i was ssooo nervous!!! didnt do my best which was frustrating, i threw 6 meters less than i can. but my nerves got the better of me. but i had a brilliant 3 days, i will never forget it. ive just gotta train like made now to put on some weight and get back there next year and do better, hopefully i wont be as nervous next time.

i still havent seen it yet on TV, i did realise that there was no cameras filming when we were throwing, the only event not to be filmed!!! how unfair is that!! but i did see myself on the big screen in the arena loads as i was sat behind the 100 meter start line and i had on bright red so you couldnt miss me!! haha oh and heres a pic of someone you might recognise, jeff capes in the red tshirt, the guy in the grey is ken my england trhows coach

Well you certainly look the part..never mind about the filming..it might have made you even more nervous. Did you meet Geoff Capes on the day.. he's a man I have always admired, strong but gentle! (if his love of birds is anything to go by!)
I agree you need to put a bit of weight on...read what Stanley has for tea...that should help! (sorry I am not implying he is overweight or eats unhealthily, I am implying he knows how to eat to sustain a good amount of excersise and not lose weight.)

Well done Conty... a very talented lad.

I remeber when our eldest was a National swimmer, swimming along in the same competitions as James Hickman, Steven Parry ( in their youth),  Sharon  Davies and many others. Anyway , these competitions used to get on TV because of the big names present. Eagerly we would watch the heats  and finals , but all you ever saw was someones head or should I say swimming cap. In swimming unless you see the whole pool you have no sense of who is doing what , all the atmosphere is lost. Its also so selective. Its like someone has already decided WHO you should watch and support.  Its a bit like only showing track events and not field events. Very disappointing for the viewers and enthusiasts who only have the TV to rely on. There is nothing like a live swimming gala, the atmosphere and the enthusiasm is electric , but on TV it appears to be the most boring sport ever.

Crikey kiddo , a head taller than Jeff Capes!!

Can you post the photos in the pics section so that there is a reference record to them.

My lad "performed" yesterday and got over his nerves. He was auditioning for a lead role in Boogie Nights. He had to put on a cockney accent and the real biggy for him... sing. He's fine when no-one is looking and has sung off stage before with no problem but in front of an audition panel and he was bricking. He had to sing "Disco Inferno" and did OK though. I was sat outside in the car and could hear him and he even got applause from the panel. He was a head taller when he came out. I don't think he's bothered about getting the part but  he's put one of his mini demons to rest and was very pleased with himself.  Nolic

I'm not as tall as you Connor by a long chalk and they tell me I'm not fat but I weigh in at just under 200lbs, built like a brick dunny as they used to say...

Ask your mother to buy half a hogget and a deep fat fryer! Oh, and find a part time job where you're working hard pysically. Many years ago a doctor told me that he could see from my bone mass that at your age I was working like a horse and eating like one! Downside is that in the end it did my back in but in the process I built up reserves that have served me well. 

Funny, I can't picture Dan auditioning.....

sue you must of been very proud, my mum cried when she saw me on the field and they played the national anthem and ive not got to the level of your eldest,
and nolic you must be very proud too, haha fancy making you sit in the car, though i think if i was singing to an audience i would of done the same, but as least hes done the dreaded bit, and its over with. if he gets the part he'll be ok as hes done it once he will do it again. i hope he gets the part, he could be the next john travolta

stanley i try to eat as much as i can, but i never really feel all that hungrey, i train alot and after training i dont fancy anything. i tend to force it down, but i do need bulking out, my parents say i will start to fill out when i stop growing, but the doctor thinks im going to make 6ft 7 so ive still got a few inches to go yet. but my coach has said hes going to start me on some weights in the winter so that might help and mum shoving protein, protein, protein and carbohydrates and anything healthy she can get her hands on, hopefully i will start to change from a stick human to man mountain haha

Don't go too far Connor or you'll end up like me - and fight to get it all off.

Dan didn't get the part and is quite upset. I think the guy who's producing the show will do it as he seems to be getting more and more directly involved and he's never done a production that he's not appeared in. Dan's upset but then again it will do no harm as I can't think he's ever had a set-back like this and its a bit like you and your art teacher - you need  get used to handling  these situations as they will not go away.

He'll recover and he has rid himself of one demon.  Nolic

Sorry to hear about Dan, my youngest has gone in for quite a few auditions and has only had one acceptance to date, I worried about her feeling deflated but she said "if i want to go into acting I would have to get used to it so it's good training!" she was also told by an older friend..if you get a rejection it is sometimes a good idea to go back and offer your skills in other ways, stage hand etc, shows them you are still keen and have stamina to suffer the set backs...not bad advice.
I bet your mum was proud Conty...i was chuffed to little mint balls when our youngest son played at the Albert Hall last year.

Connor, don't let it worry you, just use your head, learn about nutrition and make sure you eat the right stuff. I have three horary grandchildren who are tall......



I'm about 5ft 9" or a tad more. You think you have problems?

The one stood in the hole... Jack the youngest is as tall as the others now. Georgie, the photographer, their mother is tall as well.
