Olympic Prospectus2012
JA Hingston
 
J A Hingstonjahingston@gmail.com10th July 2012This prospectus seeks to plug some of these gaps. For every event at theOlympics - 302 in total - I have set out, in the simplest way possible, a brief form-guide: a summary of what's going on in the sport together with tables setting outthe world rankings and results from recent Olympic Games and WorldChampionships. For everything that has been included there is inevitably farmore left out, but I am hoping this will provide an idea of who is expected to dowell and a snapshot of the stories behind each event.The Olympics is built around stories - from the favourite chasing a new record, tothe plucky underdog surpassing all expectation. Broadcasters do a fantastic jobkeeping you up to date as they unfold but, for me, there is no substitute for beingable to spot and follow a story yourself. As interactive coverage expands, andespecially if you are watching a sport live, too often at the Olympics you are leftfeeling bewildered by the unfamiliar characters in front of you, in a sport you don’tsee outside two weeks every four years.I encourage anybody who finds use in what I have put together to distribute thisto others who may similarly benefit. It has been put together in my spare-time,not for profit or gain, but for my own interest and the enjoyment of others aroundme.All opinions and mistakes and mistaken opinions herein are my own. For everysportsman and woman there, the London Games will represent a pinnacle in theirsporting career and the culmination of years of dedication and hard work. I havethe utmost respect for every one of them - success is only ever relative.This prospectus is not designed to be read from start to finish, but rather to bedipped into to obtain that vital bit of extra information before the action unfolds.Whether printed out and taken to a session or looked at on-screen in front of theTV, I hope it will prove useful. At the front end, I have also included my top 100British medal hopes at these Olympics and my pick of three must-see eventseach day.
