    Awwww. Love Norway so yay for Norway.

    I am actually feeling emotionally tired after the conclusion of Artistic gymnastics though I am looking forward to rhythmic gymnastics and I was so behind with the Olympics that I ended up deleted all the synchro swimming and equestrian.

    Wheeee BMX starts today. Decathlon in athletics should be good and 200m. Go Jamaica.

    In connection to this, I had to laugh when I was overhearing conversations in London of people who clearly don't watch much athletics. I was in a pub when Greg Rutherford was taking one of his jumps which he clearly fouled and the crowd were booing the decision.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    US boxers left on the canvass

    the last American male boxer exited the London Games last night to complete a humiliating first Olympics without a medal for the most decorated nation in the sport.


    Welterweight Errol Spence lost 16-11 to Russian Andrey Zamkovoy in his quarter-final, failing to take advantage of the second chance given to him by organisers AIBA, who changed the result of the American's previous bout after a video review.
    Meanwhile the Telegraph is losing the run of themselves in their excitement over Team GB's performances and is now claiming athletes who aren't British.

    Love the Daily Mash

    Closing ceremony to showcase least pleasant aspects of Britain




    IN a bid to ensure international visitors don’t outstay their welcome, the Olympics closing ceremony will feature the fighting and vomiting aspects of the UK.

    The climax of the ceremony will be the dousing of the Olympic flame by Wayne Hayes, a taxi driver from Carlisle, who will light his roll-up on the flame, complain about his last gas bill, extinguish it and tell the remainder of the crowd to **** off home.

    An Irishman called Fergus Murphy (PML!) has tweeted back apparently that he isnt happy we are trying to steal Katy Taylor, but we are free to claim Ronan Keating, Louis Walsh and Jedward
