    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.

    No, the real Olympics begins with the athletics.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    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?

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

    Good bronze for the British pairs in the rowing - pushing the French to the line. The Kiwis were awesome and won the Gold they were totally expected to - good for them!!!

    Now up comes the womens double sculls final - hope the GB girls can do it.

    Yeah the British team were pretty awesome too especially considering they've been a pairing for less than a year. Looking forward to Double sculls as well. We have an outside shot for a medal. The race should be a cracker. British start favourites but they'll need to watch Australia especially.

    I'm going to write a letter of complaint to One HD. STOP SHOWING PLANET OF THE APES/ALIEN MOVIES DURING THE OLYMPICS. It makes my Dad hijack the TV.

    However, now that the swimming is going, Channel 9 appear to finally be getting a clue. So far tonight I have seen field hockey, archery, beach volleyball, basketball, swimming , shotput, heats for the hurdles component of the heptathlon, and men's 400m hurdles. Phew!
