New Year Resolutions : How are you getting on?

Visible to anyone in the world

And I make it to the Olympics to work in the Press Office covering water-polo

Returned to swim coaching and teaching last weekend and even have a place to help out with a Milton Keynes club during the week when I'm away from home. Joy! Ten months on some of the swimmers (age 8-11 in teaching groups) remembered me and were keen to tell me of some of the fun drills I used to with them. (like sea otters collecting oysters from the seabed)

Today I went for a swim, albeit the pool at the Marriott Hotel, Heathrow, but I got wet, used a pull-bouy, got warmed up and have therefore made a start. I didn't have contacts, my excuse not to bother, and it didn't matter much. I can swim in a straight line.

Olympics here I come

Visible to anyone in the world
Not as an athlete, nor as a coach, but as a volunteer or 'Gamesmaker' working on the Press Office at the water- polo venue (once played, still coach and refsmile http://www.london2012.com/water-polo-arena This'll require some training in February then a commitment from the end of July to the 12th August. All I need now is somewhere to stay in London (free travel within the 6 zones). What is water-polo? Rugby in water ... but more violent! There are two refs to keep order.
