    Those to look out for today after Adlington....Ainslie (Sailing, already guaranteed silver should take gold), Yngling (Sailing - already got bronze, need to finish ahead of the dutch to get gold), Wiggins (cycling IP), Hoy (cycling - keirin) a couple of the rowing crews have decent chances as well and Sotherton should get a medal in the heptathlon.
    You could, and with 60-odd million people you'd hope it happens/happened.

    I'd say it most definitely will by the next games (if not this one) now you guys are pumping more money into sports, and less into fish and chip shops.

    My first proper days of watching the Olympics have turned out okay!

    Another silver guaranteed in the men's team pursuit. Smashed the world record in the qualifying so looking good for the gold too.

    It's been good, hasn't it? Can't say I was expecting it. GIMH, no doubt getting out his bunting for the inevitable ticker-tape parade.

    Have to say though, and I never thought I'd ever say this, but I'm a big fan of the Germans at the Olympics. Well the ones featured in a certain magazine, anyway
