It’s day three of the Tokyo Olympics, and Great Britain came prepared, securing its first three gold medals quickly.
And there are plenty of medals up for grabs for some of the 11,000 athletes battling it out today with finals in skateboarding, swimming, diving, archery, canoe, shooting, and cycling.
The residents at Longmoor Lodge are getting into the spirit, hosting their version of this world-beating event, with different activities to keep the residents interested, amused and feeling part of the event, even if it is taking place 5,873 miles away.
Today, in honour of Valarie, one of their residents, they held the first of their races.
Valarie was a keen runner in her younger days and would love to run around the block.
Valarie was very enthusiastic, as were Rose, Freda, Thelma, Margaret, Isabella and Beryl.
It was medals all around as today’s first-place winners were Margaret, Isabella, Thelma and Rose.
