I watched the highlights of the London track world cup and the GB women sprinters and pursuit riders were fabulous, but the star of the show was the Uganda kilo cyclist, Patrick Lawino.
Cycling Uganda have a great blog - http://cyclinguganda.blogspot.com/
Watching Patrick and reading about his goals brings back memories of Eddie the Eagle and the Jamaica bobsled team.
I'm guilty of not participating in racing in the past because I felt I'd make a fool of myself, but Patrick is a great example of someone with a dream, wanting to participate regardless of coming last and he gets my support.
