CHANNEL 1 NEWS WINS JOUNALISM GOLD AT OLMYPICS

Dave Taylor and the Queen
Channel 1 News won a prestigious golden medallion for reporting the back stories of the 2012 London Olympics.  Dave Taylor met in a private ceremony with her highness the Queen on Sunday evening after the close of the Olympics.  They shared their favorite stories of the past week and did shots of "TNT", a mixture of tea and tequila, before sitting down to a dinner of Possum Tart Pie and Blood Pudding.  Dave was served a side order of French Fries at his request. 
Channel 1 News filed 312 stories covering the Olympics, which were aired on British TV.  The publics' favorite had to do with a beach volleyball bikini contest, which was held after hours in the Athlete's Village.  Dave Taylor was the honorary judge and gave the prize to the hard working Brazilian team.  He reported to the Queen, "They did what they had to do to win!"  
Dave and the Channel 1 News team were then invited to Rio in 2016. 
All in all it was a productive week for all.
Brasil won the Bikini Contest
