walking back to happiness

Crowds packed along the pavements to see the Women’s Olympic 20k Walk today.  I stopped to do a quick sketch with Buckingham Palace in the background.   A Russian supporter in front of me, had what I assumed, was a flag on a stick in his hand.  Suddenly he pulled out the ‘stick’ to reveal a telescopic fishing rod sending a Russian flag high into the air above the crowds.

It seemed to do the trick.  
Elena Lashmanova (Russia) took the Gold Medal in a World Record time, with Olga Kaniskina (Russia) taking the Silver.  
Shenjie Qieyang (China) took the Bronze.
