Finished 6th - a bit disappointing but a good display and great to watch

First gold medals today for team GB

And well done to Michael Phelps in the pool last night

What a great day for team GB today was - Still holding 3rd in the medal table, with 12 golds now I think

It was certainly a great night last night for GB, 3 golds in one night. Bet they're all still partying now!

Yes, we're looking pretty good in the medal table, although I'm not going to say any more about holding on to 3rd, brings back bitter memories of 'mind the gap'

I remember Liverpool fans telling Man Utd ones to come back after they've won 19 League titles. They've stopped crowing since then!

Last night shift and I've missed the 100m - was it worth watching?

what a day yesterday - saw Jade Jones win gold in the TKD, and Nicola Adams in the boxing. Great fights both of them.

Also caught Bolt in the 200m - he looked nervous that Blake would beat him. Good 1,2,3 for Jamaica too.

Things I have learned from the last 2 weeks:

1. Football is not the only sport worth watching

2. Britain is not crap at everything

3. Saturday nights will now always be know as 'Mo night'

4. Bring British is something to be proud of


BEST GAMES EVER
