Grumpy Sheep's Olympic Spirit!

It’s just too close to call . . .

The forthcoming Sports Personality of the Year Awards, that is.


The competition is stiffer than ever, the race for the line set to be as tight as a classic Olympic 100m final.


That the winner will be drawn from the all-star Great Britain team that shone on home soil this summer is certain. But whether it is Sir Chris Hoy, Bradley Wiggins or Jessica Ennis who emerges victorious, or whether Sarah Storey, Ben Ainslie, Ellie Simmonds or one of the other shortlisted stars goes on to claim the top prize is impossible to predict!


In some respects, it doesn’t matter . . .They’re all winners in our eyes and anyway, coming first isn’t always that important.
 

Take The Supersonic Lamb, for instance.
 

The latest Christmas musical to emerge from Grumpy Sheep Music tells the tale of a boastful little bleater, a lamb as fast as Mo Farah, who loves to brag to the other sheep about his far-superior speed.
 

The Supersonic Lamb can’t help showing off . . .
 

But, having raced at full pelt to Bethlehem one night, he learns an important lesson: that coming first isn’t always the be all and end all of everything, and that trying your best matters more.
 

Given that this has been a sporting year like never before, it is little surprise that The Supersonic Lamb – a musical that is set to be performed in school halls all over the planet in the coming days – is proving to be so popular.
 

That our latest composition embraces the Olympic ideals showcased so brilliantly in London this summer is a genuine delight . . .
 

Here at Grumpy Sheep Music, we can’t help thinking that Great Britain’s finest – preparing for their latest competition, at the BBC on December 16 – would approve!
