Olympic fans can keep up to date with TeamGB with a behind-the-scenes daily online diary written by equestrian team manager Will Connell.
Will’s colourful diary is following the journey of the Olympic and Paralympic equestrian teams throughout this summer’s Games in Hong Kong.
The equestrian team manager wrote his first installment when he arrived in Hong Kong on 24 July. He was one of the first people to arrive at the Olympic village.
Will makes funny and informative reading as he talks all aspects of the “Olympic experience”. He charts the arrival of the horses and their training, the hot and humid weather — as well as his experiments with the local cuisine, including a plate of whelks that looked like “they’d had a dose of radiation”.
