This year should have been the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, but the Covid-19 pandemic forced the Games to be put on hold. But Scottish BBC Sports Commentator Andrew Cotter didn’t want to put his notes to waste, so he decided to recreate the opening ceremony with the help of his Labrador canine companions, Olive and Mabel.
Andrew shared the video with his Twitter followers. As his dogs come into view on screen, Andrew explains that his dogs were representing Lithuania and Luxembourg. As Andrew provides a little background to Lithuania and Luxembourg’s history in the Olympics, the camera pans over to Olive and Mabel who merrily jump into a pond for a swim. Andrew then jokes that the dogs are ‘strong medal contenders’ for the eating contest.
Should have been the Olympic Opening Ceremony today. I used my notes anyway. pic.twitter.com/zjsTK3Armp— Andrew Cotter (@MrAndrewCotter) July 24, 2020
The funny film is the latest clip from Andrew to follow the adventures of his canine companions during lockdown. His Twitter followers have already enjoyed watching a ‘performance review’ of his pups.

Very sorry to hear that. Perfectly normal to head to dogs for comfort - even these two. Glad they help. pic.twitter.com/ntob6GCHsX— Andrew Cotter (@MrAndrewCotter) July 19, 2020
