I’m an Olympian…. …..Again!
Yeppers Peppers! Once again, I’m an Olympian!
…..An ‘Official’ Teddy Olympian!
ShellieMay won her medal during the 2012 Olympics.
……and maybe she won her Olympic medal before I did…
Only ShellieMay isn’t an Official Teddy Olympian like me!
…. and not only am I an Official Teddy Olympian….
I’m a three time Official Teddy Olympian medal winner!
I won a medal in the 2013, 2014…. and this year too in the 2015 Teddy Olympics!
The 2015 Teddy Olympics began on June 27th. We had a totally duffertastic opening ceremonies and everything….. Like even the Teddy Olympics beginning with the official Teddy Olympic Torch going around the whole world! You can see all the places the torch was spotted on the Official Teddy Olympics web-site.
Spencer Russ Berrie, (Twitter name: @Spencerteddy,) and Olly von Steiff, (Twitter Name: @OllyTed,) are the Official Teddy Olympian founders, hosts, and sponsors of the Teddy Olympics – twitter hashtag #TeddyOlympics.
I competed in three of the six games this year.
Strike a pose!……..
Every bear is really excited with poly-filled stuffed anticipation during the Closing Ceremonies. This year, the Official Closing Teddy Olympic Ceremonies were held on July 18th.
Oh… even kitties, doggies, pink bunnies, monkeys, and lots of other furry creatures stuffed and not stuffed participated in the 2015 Teddy Olympic Games!
Just like the opening ceremonies, and various check-ins to follow the Official Teddy Olympics Torch around the world, we all gather together on Twitter under the hashtag #TeddyOlympics.
We had a huge feast, ………
…….and even fireworks!
All the Olympians, torch bearers, judges and spectators tuned-in to enjoy the festivities and to hear the results….
My little stuffed heart beats faster and faster, harder and harder during the whole closing ceremony until we finally hear the results.
Then just when I might pop a stitch or two…
Oh BOY! It’s happy dance time again!
I won! I won!
That’s when I start going to the mailbox everyday to check for my medal.
… And then one day….
It’s here! It’s here!!!
Special Royal Mail delivery Service all the way from across the big pond too!
I like to show off my special package to ShellieMay and Little Joe. We like to look at the special Royal Mail label.
@Spencer and @Olly always pick a special bear twitter friend to be on our medal.
