    Goodison gets the gold, bit harsh on the Swedish bloke, meant he finished out of the medals, but tactics i suppose.

    I think we should add them to our medal tally personally

    To go with the thirteen we now have already. Another sailing gold this morning. Awesome.

    Couldn't help but laugh at reading this on the BBC website today:

    Arsene Wenger says he is surprised by Great Britain's gold rush at the Olympic Games. "I didn't know the English were good at swimming," said the Arsenal manager. "I have been in this country for 12 years and I haven't seen a swimming pool." (The Times)

    Pendleton is really a man imo Reckon her legs, along with Hoys are actually gum trees in disguise.

    Nah was too good for Meares. That said, Meares' story is one of the inspiring ones of the games imo, given that only 7/8 months ago she broke her neck.

    Medal table makes nice reading. How many more golds can the Aussies expect, thinking we might actually stay ahead of them.

    Olympic medal table should decide the Ashes instead of Cricket, IMO

    Haha, I'd say you'll easily stay ahead of us. Kookaburras, Opals, and one of the sailing events our only real chances left of gold I think. Our gold tally was hurt by only getting silver in the 1500, 100m freestyle for men & women and 200 bstroke women.

    Haha you have to love the English. Sure can cling on to a win.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    It's why it's better being from lands of little glory, makes you enjoy the special moments all the more. Also why I love being a Tranmere fan.
