This book consists of the how the London 2012 Olympic games was enjoyed by everybody around the world, especially by me!

It is now over a year since the London Olympics, there was a celebration after I year.

I decided to write a new book to remind me and readers of this exciting event and to bring back some very happy memories.

Just because a person has some mental health issues it does not mean that they cannot gain a great deal of enjoyment from watching the Olympics and watching sport in general, not just the Olympics, all sporting events at this level

The games were fantastic to watch and were a great success and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them.

The book focuses on some of the major Olympic sporting events that I am particularly interested in, I have also recalled some of the media statements at the time and added my views.

I have described my visit to see the Olympic Torch in Crewe and also to our trip to Old Trafford to watch Japan verses Egypt at the Olympic football Quarter Final.

I think the Olympic Games book will inspire people, including those with Mental Health issues, to be involved in watching top quality sport.

The Olympic Games in London 2012 was enjoyed by the athletes and spectators all over the World.

About the Author

Tim Price was affected by lack of oxygen when he was born in 1973. He was first diagnosed with a mental health problem in 1990, it was called Depression. This was shortly after leaving school and entering Further Education.

People can develop several different kinds of mental health issues or problems, they may need the experience of medical staff in hospitals like the Priory, Leighton, Macclesfield or other Mental Health Units.

Tim later discovered, with the help of Dr Lorna Wing, that he had Aspergers Syndrome.

This was early in 1994.

He received help from staff with experience of mental health problems.

The mental health team found appropriate accommodation for Tim. He receives help from carers every week.

Recovery took a long time with help from hospitals, carers from the Mental Health Unit, his friends and family.

He has already had two books published by Chipmunka called How to Improve Mental Health which describes the practical and other activities that he has achieved, since he began to get better and My Insight into the Computing World which describes how Tim has used computers over the years, to help him to learn.

Tim is normally a positive, happy person and he joins in activities whenever he can.

Tim has enjoyed sport all his life, including the Olympic Games, and supporting various sporting events whenever he can.
