Welcome to the review of December’s Prize Puzzle set by Gazza.  The person whose name was drawn from the electronic hat as this month’s winner was Claire Peat.  Congratulations to her.  There will be a new monthly prize puzzle in the New Year.

This month, solver’s had to identify the Olympic event identified in the grid (in blue below) and provide the missing event given the others identified in the grid (in red below).  The missing event was shooting.

Many thanks to Gazza for an enjoyable crossword.  As the Christmas season approaches may I wish you all a very joyful and peaceful Christmas and a happy New Year.

As always, thanks to our sponsors, Hamlyn Books.  Do take a moment to look at some of their publications below.
