Sire of champions

I take a brief break from the usual outpourings to express paternal pride in my daughter, Jimjams, who took part in the British Synchronized Skating championships on 12 January 2008 as a member of the Wight Diamonds team. Amidst much confusion about the scoring (confusion pretty much can be taken for granted at any event disorganised by the UK’s National Ice Skating Association), the Diamonds emerged as British Champions at Novice level. This is still a long way off the heady heights of world class ice skating, but a real achievement for the girls and their hard-working coach.

It’s pretty grand too to have a national gold medal on the dresser, whatever the level, and to style myself somewhat tongue in cheek as sire of a champion.
