“We’re ready, we’re excited, London 2012, my mouth is dry, I need some water but I’m still talking because I’m that happy I’m going to overcome it,” she says through her megaphone as people recording her joyous welcome snickered.

“I cannot contain my excitement everybody, today is a very special day, we are going to be telling our children’s children’s children’s children’s children about this day.”
