One of the products of a wonderful if very long day at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. A brilliantly organised and executed festival of sport, everyone should be thoroughly proud of themselves. Visitors was supporting their own team but everyone else as well, especially those who came last! We got lots of practice in that because apart from supporting Scotland and the home nations we also supported Papua New Guinea as we have lived there, and apart from one race where a woman just pipped a Jamaican to come second from last - they were all last!
This is Edith Ogoke a Middleweight woman boxer from Nigeria winning her quarterfinal match. Whether you agree with women's boxing or not, ( I do ) what you can't argue with is the sheer joy of every woman boxer on just being there even the losers looked pleased to have been there. Edith is particularly happy because winning in the quarterfinals in boxing guarantees you at least a Bronze medal. The Nigerian element of athletes who were supporting her went crazy with delight for her. She looks a bit pleased too!
Boring technical bit - shooting, no flash at 6 frames a second on the XT 1 - at very high ISOs - stunned with the colours sharpness and noise ( lack of)
