The Final parade was good apart from the rain but it was still good to watch. There was a good atmosphere all day as everyone supported each other. Everyone cheered each other on, which was nice. Knowing that everyone was behind me when I was doing my events.

The best thing that happened that day was watching Sergeant Lee-Pearson destroy everyone else in 200m and then do a Usain Bolt pose at the end.
