Ben Ainslie wins Teams GB's 15th Gold Medal

:cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

Good sailing. I was worried he mught make the errors of the previous guys who were so concentrated on watching the Brazilians that they let the Swedes sneak in and take gold. Ben held firm.

Already 4 medals today - we just don't know the colour of two of them :)

Well done to Ben Ainslie!

If Irish boxer can win tonight, we'll have secured our first medal of these games. :drama:

I love the posturing and posing before going into the pool for synchro.

Last week has been crazy, finally today I'm able to sit down, chat on FSU and watch for real, I've been running back and forth. Finally he Olympic feelin us really hitting me! Sooooo happy for Izbaza and Murray winning gold, yay!

Our Norweigans aren't exactly rocking London, but I don't care, our silver medal in fencing made my Olympics. Bartosz rocks! And Sweden and Denmark are doing really well. I'm ready for the rest!

Already 2 golds, 2 silvers and a bronze. We have another medal in the tennis - not sure if it is gold or silver until Laura and Andy play. Another cycling medal is also possible so lets keep our fingers crossed!!

It's like what the ice dancers used to do before they started their routines back when ice dancing was voidy.

My word, the center for the Chinese women's basketball team is, um, well, bless her heart it's good she can play basketball I guess. Sort of.
