    Impressed by Burmester, even if he didn't get the medal. Well done

    The man is a freak, they should extend the swimming program out to 16 days and let him swim every event. ****'d win 57 medals.

    Bronze in the 4×200 relay, great effort. Two more Golds for Phelps, incredible race from the Americans. Smashed everyone.

    It should be worth noting, that if Michael Phelps were a country, he would be 4th on the medal tally 8|

    Completely against his usual racing style too, so it was good of him to shake it up a bit. Great effort considering he was apparently a bit sick too - exceeded my expectations (although I doubt he was probably too worried about that..)

    Reminds me of the time I read that Baulkham Hills Shire would have finished fourth or something similar in the Commonwealth Games.

    Thrilled with Burmester's performance, swam the race of his life.

    I hope we get a medal soon though...

    Gutted I missed Burmester's race and that he missed out on a medal, but by all accounts he swam really well. Good on him, made NZ proud.

    SEQ with all of Australia's golds afaik. If you count Redcliffe as part of Brisbane then we'd be one of the most successful cities in the games.

    Back in 2004 the Gold Coast itself had a fair few athletes that won plenty of medals, Grant Hackett being one of them.
