Ailsa’s idea of celebrating the starting of the Olympics with a sport post got me thinking. I have captured the odd sporting moment so why don’t I follow her example and show you some of the fun I’ve had with the camera while others were breaking a sweat? As Ailsa begins with a bit of tug-of-war along somewhere on the sunny east coast I’ll begin with a bit of rainbow running along that same east coat… just a few miles to the north…

At the end of the rainbow... no, it's not a leprechaun but it is Irish! I think...

Next… why not a bit of diving? In summer the kids of inner city Dublin have to find an outlet so Liffey jumping is the way to go!

Diving into the Liffey... city summer fun!

Then… what would a sporting post be without a bit of Cricket? Cricket in Phoenix Park… with onlookers all attentively watching the action! Strange what the sun can do!

Phoenix Park cricket on a sunny day...

Makes you wonder what some folk will do in the name of sport? I mean… tyres are for cars… not for dragging behind one’s behind!

That can't be play? Surely that's torture!

Then… how about some synchronised swimming? Surely one gets judged on the perfection of bottoms up?

Ahaaa... look, we can do it!!

There are so many sports to still show. I mean… how many different running or water disciplines are to be covered? I know… I’ll show a few more water activities and then… as is always the case… we’ll end with the marathon!  So… here’s a few boating bits…

Gosh… I almost forgot the two-wheeled sports… so, here’s a few that will get you thinking…

And finally… to the marathon we go!!

    Uitstekende fotos oor die ander sy(e) van sport: die pyn en die plesier, maak nie saak of jy wen of verloor nie. Dis regtig ‘n gawe om ‘n hele storie te skryf met ‘n foto.
