Dont think so Ziglet.

Awww the British Archer started off really well but the Malaysian pulled back to win. British interest in archery is now over.

Can't wait for the athletics. Denise Lewis has just given a long interview on the BBC and I can't believe how eloquent she is. The experienced BBC presenters have nothing over her, she is politician-eloquent. :)

Big day for New Zealand. Two huge finals. Mens pair should be easy as they set a world best time in the heat and breezed through in the semi. Mahe Drysdale has a huge chance but single sculls is always very competitive and the womens double scull is a medal chance as well.

Excited that we're finally into athletics too tthough trying to record everything is becoming increasingly difficult. Looking forward to the trampoline. Not sure what is up with the diving but it doesn't seem to part of my coverage which is frustrating. Also looking forward to the track cycling. Always a chance for a medal in the team pursuit. It'll be for bronze though. Great Britain and Australia are way too strong.

I wonder, why have the organisers employed presenters with an American accent for some of the events? I can hear right now that it's the same for athletics. What's wrong with any of the British accents? :confused:

I am convinced that Kate married Wills because she knew she could get free tickets to any Olympic events she wanted :D
