    i believe its spelt Bayley.... he was awesome,
    how can i go past the womens relay world record in the pool, any event libby gets a gold in is good IMO
    Anna Meares gold medal was superb, i really think all our golds have been awesome.
    The baseball and Softball sides also thumbs up for great silver medal efforts.
    Biggest disapointment was the hockeyroos and the the olyroos. Losing to Iraq in the football was simply unacceptable....

    Have to go for Ulmer breaking her own WR by 4 seconds then by another 2 in the final.

    Loved the triathlon, 2 medals for NZ and seeing how happy the Swiss guy was to get bronze, brilliant.

    Also the Thorpe-van den Hoogenband-Phelps race and the men's 100m run were both brilliant.

    Ooh, either Kelly's double or our first relay gold since 1912 which happened a few moments ago.

    Ditto.

    The last relay gold for Britain was, as you say, 1912. The last time we had an athlete (as in 'athletics') picking up two individual golds in the same Olympics was in 1920.

    Typical. Near-unique British achievements in track and field are just like buses. You get none for over 80 years then two come along at once.

    I nearly choked on my moussaka (home-made) when Kelly Holmes struck gold - then nearly spilt my cheesecake (home-made) when the relay squad finished first.

    Amazing day.

    Moussaka AND cheesecake.

    What a day - if only Backley could have pulled off one last huge throw, it would have been perfect.

    Great event. Did the Norwegian practice back home by throwing frozen swordfish?

    <quack> I agree regarding it being a great event. Nearest thing we've got to the ultimate sport - LAWN DARTS!
