Go for gold
• Ronnie Delaney started my love affair with the Olympic Games. As I, all scabby-kneed and short-trousered, bolted around the field in my native west Limerick, I was Ronnie.
Never failing to pip John Landy and other rivals, I managed to provide excited commentary as well. My audience was limited but my dreams were infinite.
The ambition to fulfil a lifelong Olympic dream remains, albeit now as a spectator.
