Team GB: All Winners; A tribute Through Haiku Poems
Nigel goes to Rio, Good Luck Team GB 2016
Nigel goes to Rio with Team GB
During the London Olympic, 2012, we cheered for Nigel and Team GB, and they made us proud. Once again my fast cousin Nigel Smoothy Levine has joined the Great Britain Athletics squad in Brazil to do what they do best, and that is to win medals.
Nigel broke into the Athletics scene in 2005. In his first full season he recording a time of 46.31s at the European Junior Championships. The Smooth Operator collected his first International medal in 2008 when he took silver at the World Junior Championships in the 4x400m relay. In 2009, our boy won silver at the European Indoor Championships.
Nigel continued to work hard, and his efforts resulted in a cache of medals, soon; he was rewarded with a place on the GB Athletics team in London 2012. Four years later, and this talented athlete has gone from strength to strength as he joined Team GB in his second Olympic Games in Rio 2016.
Nige, everyone here is rooting for you. Good luck cos, you've already done us proud.
London Calling, Go Nigel!
London 2012, the time has come, the games have begun.
They come in droves, hearts full of hope, dreaming of gold, silver, and bronze.
Many young competitors arrived at their first Olympic Games with eyes open wide in response to 'London Calling.' The hard work has paid off; London's the place to shine and see their names emblazed in lights. Olympians who have come before, remember the glory days, don't be surprised if a tear or two escape from their eyes as they dream of one more ride on this merry-go-round.
In honour of this memorable event, I have written a set of haiku poems as a tribute to all those who are taking part in the London 2012 Olympic games. I hope many dreams will come true, especially for team GB. But particularly, for my young cousin Nigel Levine. Nigel was chosen to represent his country as a member of this select group of Britons, and I hope all his hard work and perseverance will earn a medal or two.
Nigel, have already made us proud, and we will all be cheering for him on Saturday.
Nigel's sport is athletics, the men's 400m and the men's 4x 400m Relay. 2,000 athletes are competing in 47 events; athletics is the largest single sport at the Olympics.
Haiku Poems; A Tribute To Nigel Levine and Team GB
London twenty twelve
Nation shows Jubilation
British hope, a shining light
A promising force
Heart of a lion
Moving like a hurricane
Hard work paying off
Moving like Lightning
Fueled by adrenaline rush
Spirit of Nature
His mother's bright eyes
His father's generous smile
A blazing arrow
The whole world watches
Go Team Britain, make us proud
Country holds its breath
Just a few words to announce that my FAST cousin Nigel Levine has run his qualifying round this morning Saturday 04/08/2012. Nigel clocked up a time of 45.58s finishing third to secure his place in the semi-final in the 400m.
For the folks from the Caribbean who do not recognise this talented young man, Nigel is the son of Margaret Alexis (Ancilla) and Godfrey Levine from Bedford England.
Go Nigel!! Go Team GB
Jessica Ennis rocked London tonight when she won the Olympic heptathlon after an incredible run in the 800m. Before we could catch our collective breaths, Greg Rutherford took Gold in the long jump, And the magic just keeps coming. Mo Farah made the 10K and the roof of the stadium almost blew off.
Simply Blooming awesome.
These youngsters are helping to put the GREAT back in Britain, and they're doing it with such style! Go Team Britain, shine your light.
