World Champs!

Huge congratulations to the Medium (Silver Medalists) & Large (Bronze Medalists) GB teams for their gr8 successes in Norway at the World Championships. It was an awesome experience and one that I can not recommend highly enough to any agility enthusiast. The atmosphere is the ultimate, the sense of pride, excitement, edge of seat entertainment would satisfy any adrenaline junkie. It is truly amazing. I could wax lyrical for pages and pages but they wouldn't have the web space for it!!

A very very few pics - there was very little time to take pics due to the amount of celebrating and the fact that I was very busy being groom to Bernadette & Zen as well as enjoying watching some top class handlers negotiate some very interesting courses.

This 1st pic is for my Mum! :), doesn't she look like Tessa mum?
They had these bronze statues all over town. On the roundabout near the hotel they had a horse with huge goolies!!



The view from our Hotel - once again Kate Howard did us proud, we were very comfortable, very well fed, and quite close to the stadium. The Swedish and Japanese teams were also staying and we watched them run their dogs in the park opposite while we eat breakfast.



The trees were on the turn and the colours were gorgeous.

And here is our official GB team photographer! What a sterling job he did too, check out the photos on his site http://picasaweb.google.com/DennisMBay/WC2007.




Good job Denis was taking the photos eh! Mine's not much cop.
Bernadette has her computer with her so let's hope she gets some time to write her blog on the way home.
Gotta go, lots of training planning and goal setting to do in preparation for next years competition in Helsinki, Finland :)

Thanks for the mention and the photo of me hard at work; waiting for that elusive perfect shot. Too bad the lighting in the arena was not better.... I think it's time to invest in some more equipment
