    I can only think of RG as a lock they have Kanaeva and Dmitrieva I think
    and can win Gold and Silver or vice versa, well there is Greco Roman wrestling

    but for me Judo and Wrestling are a bit obscure sport for me, not saying all the golds won there are not to be credited still give respect to all medalists

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Yay - and so are Team GB. I assume from this that there is no bronze medal fight and both losers of the semi gets a medal!!

    Marion Jones never failed a drug test and set some great performance but we know and the generation of US sprinters where dope. So, just because they have great performance outside of US does not mean they are clean, especially US 400 mts runners, they have a tradition of relay runners on steroids.

    It is sad because there are plenty of clean athletes but the dirty ones ruin it for everyone else. I use to value the track over the pool but not so much now.

    Yet you're cheering for Ohuruogu who's served a ban for evading controls?

    From the Irish Times blog:

    IT:*There are reports that NBC didn’t show the 100m final. Show Jumping instead. In light of that, I don’t think we should have any further complaints about RTE.

    Are they still good in field events like shot put, hammer throw, etc? They used to be a while back at least.

    Russia usually does well in wrestling. With synchro + rhythmics they should land fourth or fifth.

    The BBC obviously follow things on FSU given how they are using Spandau Ballet every time GB get a gold on the highlights programme.

    There's a Canadian commercial that uses a few lines from Spandau Ballet.

    So Katie Taylor will face Natasha Jonas (GB) in women's boxing tomorrow. Hometown fighters tend to do very well.
