Its when I see  those athletes from those countries with barely a handful of athletes but all of them good enough to be there. Thats when I get a bit tearful, and want to say to all those naysayers who cant see the point of the Olympics.

Thats the point!

In a dreadfully unfair world this is a little bit of fair

Watching the cycling - it's all a bit tense in our house - I'm sure they know what they're doing *fingers crossed*

Well that didn't gp to plan, not a Vino fan so when i saw the game was up for the peleton i wanted Fab till he nosed dived into a barrier.

Guess controlling the whole race with just 5 people was a big ask for the GB boys

Exactly what was Uran looking at when Vinokourov went past him?

I actually laughed when I saw him look over his left shoulder.

No one told him that in England traffic passes you on your right.

Gutted for Cavendish, though I wonder if in some way it will have a benefit for Team GB athletes overall by taking some of the expectation pressure off. Think it would have been a fever pitch if he had delivered on day 1. That's no consolation for Mark Cavendish though.

TBh i don't think the pressure will be off at all, The expectation as home team is big.

I know this was only a Google away but if anyone's interested, here's the starting order for the women's and the men's TT this afternoon. 

Come on Wiggo!  Come on Pooley!

One of the heats of the women's 100m today was a perfect illustration of Stephen's point about the lesser nations. Some very slow starts and most of those athletes could likely have been beaten by any good junior from the Western world - but these athletes to me are the epitome of the Olympic ideal.
