Watched the women's triathlon on Saturday - very disappointing from Helen Jenkins. For me, she should not have been selected over Jodie Stimpson who had consistently put in good performances in prior races and just had a blip at the Gold Coast. Seemed like a massive waste of an Olympic spot to give it to someone who's form is at best hit and miss, and who on the day didn't appear to get off the bus, depriving a generally very consistent athlete, who had an extremely viable shot at getting a podium place, of her Olympic ambition.
The cycling last night was immense!! Way to go team GB.
The gymnastics has equally been superb and so impressive - it's just sensational to watch.
VDOT - yes I agree that there is abuse in the horse world. You may not know that there is a lot of work being undertaken by independent groups to eradicate this completely. However, not everyone trains their horse abusively. And, before you troll me on here (as you seem to be fond of doing to others), no I don't agree with training by cruelty. I have done some work with a horse whisperer and the results you get from kindness and love far outweigh those you get with force and cruelty.
