    Right , sorry nmot been on , ridiculously busy - thanks for updates Dawn


    Hugely proud of our golden girls - heard the end of the race as I was driving - Alan Green the stalwart commentator was in tears - the crowd noise was unbelievable - and the crowd singing the anthem was just so moving.

    Bronze in the 8's was a valiabt effort - we led the Germans for a while first time anyone has done that for 4 years ! - they went for it and relinquised the silver to go for it - they are brave and worthy heros

    Wiggo is currently leading and Froome in Bronze :D

    Spoken to a chap whos former team GB daughter took him to the whiff whaff yesterday - he said he has been withher all around the world to tournaments but the crowd was like nothing he had ever seen and this wasn't even for team GB - again another stoical gent almost brought to tears through pride

    This olympics is something very very special

    The badminton was a disgrace and has been properly punished - it was arccal and I feel so sorry for the paying public

    They were saying on the news that the spectators may get refunds from Badminton.

    They should get the disqualified athletes to pay back all those ticket holders. Disgraceful.

    I heard a man on the radio yesterday. He had paid 200 to take his family and that was the only session they got tickets to. Not exactly the Olympic memory they were hoping for. :mad:

    Well the error has been corrected but earlier today the NBC Olympic website had Australia in Europe next to the Czech Republic.

    Laughing stock of the world.
