On Wednesday 2nd August Team Andy headed for London to officially announce that we had all been selected onto the Great Britain Team. Though we had known since crew allocation the official announcement was kept ‘top secret’ (well sort of) until this day.
We all met in Parliament square, some had yet to change into their official Great Britain kit but once we were all uniformly dressed we posed for our first official photograph in front of the statue of Winston Churchill.
Next stop was 10 Downing Street. After a security check we once again had our official team photos taken outside Downing Street. I must say my highlight was meeting Larry the cat, though he seemed quite used to lots of attention and fuss. We were met by the officials from the GREAT Britain campaign and they took us over to the Foreign Office for a tour round and presentation on the campaign. We were wished all the success and left feeling very proud to be chosen as ambassadors for GREAT Britain.
