July 13, 2012–Fran Jurga, author of the popular 2010 DiscoverWEG blog and WorldRides blog for the Beijing Olympic equestrian events, returns to DiscoverHorses.com with an exclusive new blog–Discover London Olympics at www.discoverhorses.com/discover-leq-blog. The award-winning blogger has already created more than two dozen posts on Olympic topics ranging from the London venue to “secret weapons” on various teams.
Through videos, images and her trademark jaunty writing, Fran gives readers an inside view of the build-up to the Games and what’s happening behind the scenes when competitions get underway.
Jurga previews BBC America’s new comic parody of the Olympic planning process, “Twenty Twelve,” and feature exclusive equestrian photos of Jennifer Saunders, star of the BBC hit comedy “Absolutely Fabulous.” Jurga’s posts range from the lighthearted Olympic commercial for British Airways to the serious political statements made by Syrian showjumper Ahmad Hamcho.
The new blog offers a headline newsfeed as an RSS feed or daily subscription, available in widget form to any website or blog that would like to host the headlines.
Fran also writes two award-winning blogs for the Equine Network on EquiSearch.com: The Jurga Report on horse health and War Horse News about the recent Steven Spielberg film.
The Discover London Olympics blog is part of DiscoverHorses.com’s robust Olympics section, which includes previews of the U.S. dressage, eventing and jumping teams by Nancy Jaffer; a preview of the U.S. Paralympic dressage team by Melissa Wright; and a blog by champion para-equestrian Becca Hart. The DiscoverHorses.com coverage complements the Olympic section on EquiSearch.com (www.equisearch.com/olympics) sponsored by ZIMECTERIN? Gold.
