She's been dropped :( I'm really surprised there wasn't a decent attempt at a proper break during the bike stage.

Yes Gold.

Yep no need for apologies. Triathlon is ultra difficult and ultra competitive. Do the same race in a months time and the results could be completely difference. I think she did well but unortunately probably wanted a break during the bike stage.

Final rowing events - hopefully a medal or two for the Brits in these. I'm not sure I will be able to survive without my dose of Sir Steve Redgrave after today :(

Don't think that will be the only gold you get in rowing today. Great chances in both lightweight double sculls. Hopefully the kiwis beat you in the mens.

It's funny I always want to beat the Aussies but am OK if the Kiwis win :)
