    That was incredible. Steven has just told me to calm down and stop cheering so loudly. Amazing rowing final and silver to GB - only quarter of a second from gold. Well done to South Africa though. And the crowd were insane.

    GB gutted because if they were given the right lane it probbaly would have been Gold

    However aside from Sir Steves last gold medal that was THE best race I have ever seen - so exciting

    One of the overriding memories I will take away from these games is the noise made by that crowd. Never say that Eton is too posh for cheering. That was mental and something I'll never forget.

    One of my work partners was at the Gymnastics yesterday and said that was incredible - he has spent a LOT of money on tickets - he has been to Rowing , Box hill for the ladies, Gymnastics , Swimming, Athletics , Handball, and a few others but he says its a once in a lifetime event and so far it has surpassed his wildest dreams

    Hard to say what has impressed me most - the organisation the crowds the coverage or the athletes

    Think I'll tae the easy option and simply say 'Britain ' ;)

    Second time today I've been told off by Steven for cheering too loudly.

    Gemma Gibbons through to the judo final.
