Lizzy Yarnold: Return of greenYgrey Great

Thinking about my ice sculpture afterwards, I think I did look on my phone for the other photos, but couldn’t see them, as I took so many on the Borgarnes Beach, and they were all quite monochrome (black and white). I thought of that while watching the Winter Olympics live, and it was like a deja vu greenYgrey age reminder, as Lizzy Yarnold repeated her Sochi feat, by winning the Skeleton gold again in Pyeonchang. It was four years ago to the day that her first gold made headline news in the greenYgrey world, with a ZZ Top poetry ditty intro:

First of all I’d like to congratulate quite Thin Lizzy Yarnold for winning Team GB‘s first gold medal of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics by finishing ZZ Top in the skeleton (a type of sled).

Pyeonchang Izz Buzzing

The bizzy (busy) day of izz deja vu had started earlier in the day, with Izzy Atkin winning a bronze.

There have been lots more amazing performances, and unlucky great competitors who’ve just missed out, but I’m calling it a day here, and will let the games continue, without further ado.
