WithWhite on the left, two on the right, and a drop of two – this was the cheerful motto of knitting grandmothers who were not very grandmothers in a hobby that was very convenient. Knitting is no longer a novelty’s job, but relaxation seems to be the deeper goal of the exercise.
british diver Tom Daly He proved on the sidelines of the Tokyo Olympics that he can also use knitting needles effectively, even when the sports world is poised around him. When the decision was made about the women’s jumping from the three-meter board, the 27-year-old was a spectator in the swimming rink, but apparently wasn’t really focused on the competition.
Instead, Daly was engrossed in craftsmanship to create a suitable shell for his long-awaited gold medal, which he and his dubbing partner Mattie Lee won from the ten-meter podium.
As befits a sports pop culture star whose life has largely been shown in public since he was the focus of a long-running BBC documentary when he was ten years old, and When he was 19, he confessed his love to a man in a YouTube videoDali, of course, was aware of the impact of his public work.
He then presented the result of his creative strength in an Instagram post and beamed with joy and wrote: “Thank you to all my knitting friends! Learning to knit and crochet helped me a lot at the Olympics. We won gold yesterday. I also made a small medal holder!”
The water-jumping prodigy was already the first European champion at the age of 14, and at the age of 15 he became the world champion for the first time in 2009. But it would take another twelve years before Daly could fulfill the great promise and finally win the Olympic gold after two bronze medals in the 2012 and 2016.
On the podium, he burst into tears when he finally got the gold. It goes without saying that this precious piece should not be scratched. Tom Daley will start again in singles competition on Friday. He will probably have to pick up the needles again after that.
