“We are witnessing a momentous event in British Sport. Speed Skating Star Kate “the skate” who has been through such a lot in the past few months with an injured wing, has taken Gold at the 2014 Olympic final, the first time someone from the United KIngdom Β has done so.

As the flags were lowered to the British National Anthem, Kate and her best friend and closest rival Danielle from the American team, unfurled a banner which I think says it all. We sincerely hope that our human friends can put aside their prejudices and treat each other with respect and dignity, as we ducks learned to do many years ago.

Joining the athletes at the podium are Pieter the husband of the Russian skater Olga along with their little daughter, as well as Brad and Lisa the partners of Danielle and Kate respectively. It is a double celebration for Kate today as she and Lisa announced their engagement this morning. Both of their families are in the crowd, and viewers I can tell you that there is not a dry eye in the house. What a day to remember. We are all very, very proud.”

    • Clare Baldwing is a stalwart of the DBC and a National Treasure!
      The Duck Olympic Committee thought that it would be more dignified to have the National Flags lowered from a platform, as hoisting a flag up a pole has some practical difficulties for a duck.
      Kate and Lisa are going to have a June wedding in their hometown of Burford in the Cotswolds, with a honeymoon in Provincetown USA.

      • Just a thought … I think if you tinker with WP settings it will turn πŸ™‚ into a smiley!
