Your best moment of these Games
For me, it was that big German weightlifter Matthias Steiner winning the gold in the 105kg competition, overcoming his grief at the death of his wife who died in a car accident in July last year. A different kind of courage.

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

Eric Shanteau must be up there. Only came 10th in the 200m breastroke, failing to make the final, but has put off treatment for testicular cancer to compete.
One almost hesitates to call it "ballsy", but...

There have been 17 of these great moments so far tbh
The ones dav and Brumby said seem hard to go past, though
Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

Benjamin Boukpeti taking the bronze for Togo- it should have been more, but you can't begrudge him
The coxless four final was a superb race: "THE BRITISH ARE COMING! THE BRITISH ARE COMING!", felt sorry for Australia but even if they'd held on it would have been brilliant.
The team sprint victory, the first GB gold on the track, because I was concerned they wouldn't live up to the hype but as soon as that happened I knew it would be okay. Or better than okay.
The sculler twins from NZ taking the final by 100th of a second.
Kirsty Coventry single-handedly octupling Zimbabwe's medal count- eight medals in history, seven of them to her. Brian Dzingai was another highlight, finishing fourth in the 200m after the two DSQs.
Somebody has to...
