I have just started to watch it and have quite enjoyed what I have seen so far.
We had a favourite in the cycling who fell off his bike and was injured.
A female cyclist who said she didn't try and win because she had no one to help her.
A female face kicker who was a favourite who went out because she was frightened.
A male face kicker who is in the Final because he avoided the demi johns and a female judoist who got a medal by falling over with her opponent.
Must learn a bit about these fighting games so I have an idea what is happening !

3 Gold medals so far today. One nailed on for Peatty the unbeatable swimmer , one for Daley the diver , better than expected and one for mountain biking which apparently came from nowhere.
Another chance in the face kicking at 1.30pm today , less than 50/50 apparently but a chance nonetheless.
Keep going GB .

BBC haven't covered themselves with glory. Plenty of whining on twittersphere.

Very disappointed in the GB Gymnastic team who seemed to be delighted to come fourth. That has to be the worst position to finish in any event.
But we have another gold with a swimmer who no one mentioned in the race until the last 15 meters . Silver as well in that race and a silver in the women's triathlon with a girl who had a puncture on the cycle race.
Yet another chance of a medal in the face kicking after a silver yesterday. We seem to be quite good at this. Is it a throwback from our warlike past ?

Especially when they walk out. She must have known something that she did not disclose to her trainer/colleagues/those in charge of the GB team. All that money down the drain. Its one charity I chave never given to, in fact this year apart from the news that is all I have watched.

Another gold in the swimming and a silver in the skulls ( sounds a bit warlike as well ).
We also have a chance with a posh bird on a horse apparently after the team got a bronze yesterday.
Will the athletics team perform as well as expected to make it a really good medal haul.

A little off topic because I’ve only been watching on the sport news bulletin, but I have been watching the Hundred cricket, I really wanted not to like it, but it’s been entertaining. Strange though seeing all these Yorkshire men playing for made up teams😀

Wilton watch track events next week.

Oh, I did watch the ladies cycling where the young lassy took the lead really early and went on to win it, she really believed in herself!👍👍👏👏

Bit of a quieter day on the medal front today, A well earned silver in the conoeing through a waterfall and a bronze for shooting out of the traps which sounds like something Dozza might do from Moore Street !

A plethora of medals today and the BBC played a blinder by coming away from the BMX finals to show a preliminary round boxing match missing a gold and silver on the main channel , relegating it to the red button.
Sacking for the producer ? They will probably promote him !
Lots of records being broken or matched by results in medals dating back to 1908 . In case you didn't know this was a home Olympics in London.
Old Timer was probably there so he could fill us in on whether the athletes today were as good as then !

Dare I mention it, a missed penalty, may have cost GB Women a Semi- Final Place.

Two more golds today in peculiar mixed sex relays , fluffed almost by a BBC commentator as mixed race before he amended it.
Both commentators and the GB teams thought it a wonderful competition but we did win gold medals in both events so that may have coloured their opinion !
We also won a bronze on a wind surf board !
Athletics starting today . Not confident in any medals there !

Golf coverage on Eurosport very poor compared to Sky. All over the place and mainly just putting. 👎

Another gold for GB in the hovering bike contest , we also got a bronze in the men's bit. How do they get the bikes to hover in the air like that ?
Another silver in the pool and then the BBC spoil it all by showing hours of middle aged men in colourful sweaters walking round a field.
Bet Slicer's happy though.

Another horsey gold and a silver in the weightlifting with finalists in the hockey and boxing to come. It's raining medals at the moment .

The sailors and the horse people are doing very well with medals all the way. Boxers doing reasonably well until they come up against the Cubans but athletics are a shambles , taking lots of injured competitors on reputation alone , although we did get a silver.
The cyclists , having led the World for 20 yrs have now been overtaken and although getting lots of personal bests will have to reassess before they can drive on again.

At last a gold medal on a bike , more to do with tactics than the equipment though . Well ridden .
A bronze in the women's pole vault as well.

20 Gold medals and 4th in the medal table.
Not bad for a little island off the coast of Europe !
