Didnt realise that Magnussen was so far ahead of the rest of the world in the 100m - something like half a second
Would have to rank as one of the biggest upsets of the Games if he doesnt win
Pretty much an open secret about Thorpe, isn't it? Sister ain't fooling anyone, is she?

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Bronze for Becky Adlington in the 400 free then. Fair play to her.
Aye good race

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Dumb decisions to have Magnussen lead off, and he swam a dud leg tbh.

Nice one Adlington, set her up nicely for the favoured event later in the week.
Well done Froggies, great to see the Yanks get beat.
Yet another example of why you shouldn't gob off ahead of an event like the Olympics. It's been all about Magnussen in the lead up to these Games, and he's been pretty lippy himself.

Has there been a random gold medal for Australia today in some obscure sport like trap shooting or the Archery? We usually do that early doors.
Magnussen is gutted. Hopefully Steve Waugh gets in his shell-like and tells him to HTFU.
Magnussen's reaction and body language while the race was still going and his teammates still had to swim was nothing short of piss poor. All about him. Feel free to mope around after the race is done but they were still in medal contention after he finished, he should have been encouraging his teammates.
