I have some questions about the outfits, particularly the gymnasts.

Is there some rule that the women's leotards must have sparkly things on them?  Because they all seem to, and it looks so 1980s.

Also, why do they wear one kind for one event, but a different one for another?  Beth Tweddle was wearing a red one the other day, today it's the blue, union flag one.

The two British men in the pommel horse final had different colour-schemes of the union flag, too - one red, one blue.

I don't know about the sparkles, but I do know that in many of the events each country has to have a "home" and "away" kit. I don't know the rules determining whether they wear the "home" or "away" kit on any given day though - or why the two male gymnasts were wearing different variations on the kit in the same event.

Well getting back to Jess I say well done to her for winning the Laureus Award for World Sportswoman of the Year - Very well deserved and very well done to her!

Jess is surely one of the best all round athletes that Britain has ever produced and my favourite athlete.

I don't fancy her. Not my cup of tea. I prefer the more curvaceous ladies.

Bit harsh to say she looks like a bloke!?
