    Legend. Gutted for Victoria as she was clearly pushed. Still 7/10 golds in the velodrome is a good day at the office :)

    How absolutely amazing was that Dressage competition.


    Couple of epic pile-ups in the BMX too.

    These people are so inspirational. I will really miss it when it's gone.

    3rd in the medal table is stunning stuff. Every day brings more astonishment.

    Looking forward to the 200m tonight very much.

    Tom Daley has won bronze

    I am so proud of him, it will be party time at the Daleys tonight :D Tom lost his Dad a year ago, had to move schools because he was bullied and yet he still managed to win an Olympic medal, just like his Dad said he would. So very very happy for him

    So funny , watched it again this morning. Tom was clearly disappointed as he watched those dives go in but it was the difficulty of his last dive that cost him the gold , nothing more. Loved how he celebrated his bronze as if it were gold, bundle in the pool :)

    Even a possibility of 2 holds today as well in the boxing and modern pentathlon

    This has been quite some journey

    Bought the album from the opening ceremony and downloaded the elbow track from the bbc Olympic theme and also the bbc torch relay music. Im olympiced up ate the moment :D

    I found the grumpy person in London yesterday and he works at Hyde Park Corner station.

    Have had a mega last two days in London. When I get the photos sorted I'll let you all know what we got up to. :D

    Tom would have liked gold, anyone would have but all he wanted to do was win a medal for his Dad, which he did :D He is over the moon, Pat spoke to his aunt last night and she said that she had spoken to Tom and he was so excited that he won a medal for his Dad and he didn't care what colour it was it felt like gold to him.

    Tom is only 18 and in 4 years time he will win the gold medal

    The family are planning a huge party for when he comes home, but the first thing Tom wants to do is go to see his Dad and show him his medal
