In inadvertently stayed up to watch Mo last night (I wanted to sleep, but my Dad had friends over and were being as loud and annoying as gooseberry fool so I couldn't sleep. Seeing him win was awesome.

The number of DQs in that 5k was ridiculous.

It's all over now (bar the marathon). Absolutely fantastic performance by Team GB. Pretty decent Olympics, all the venues looked good, there was some great scenery. How empty everything was kinda sucked and some of the officiating has been very sketchy. I would imagine Tokyo will be better.

Why is Portugal so utterly hopeless at the Olympics? They've been outdone by the likes of Grenada and Fiji...

Austria and Finland too, 1 bronze each. Worst of all though, has to be India (1 silver 1 bronze)

I misinterpreted the schedule and thought they had several gold medal matches lined up today. Happy to be wrong :D

Uzbekistan have had a good finish to the games, 2 boxing golds. Now, hopefully gold for Joe Joyce!

Why do the amateur boxers gas so quickly? They look in great shape bit are knackered after a few minutes.
