    She did indeed but it was an amazing story. It meant so much to her. At ippon she was in floods of tears and called thank you to her sadly departed mother. The crowd were in tears and on their feet.

    The Olympics is about more than gold
    Medals and that awful and pointless medal table. It's about the little stories of inspirational young and driven people who strive to better themselves.

    YES! YES! YES!!! It IS about the stories of the athletes! That's what the Olympics are all about! (Oh, and geography lessons).

    It appears we got a bit carried away in our house yesterday - one of our Team GB boom sticks has sprung a leak.

    Track and Field starts today.

    Maybe it is Nando being out of our house that does it.. we're at a family wedding and so he's in the kennels! We're fourth in the medal tables now..!
