Really impressed with the sportsmanship shown as well. I liked that when the mens quads (not sure if that's what they'er called...you know, four men in a boat.) won gold, they told the interviewers to wait while they went to help the Australian silver medalists out of their boat. What does annoy me though is ignoramus comentators describeing silver and bronze medalists as having "lost" and saying they must be disapointed! Anyway what happened to the cream of GB's multi-millionair soccer players? (Don't answer, I'm not really interested.) Graham.
Here's an article that will make you either choke on your cornflakes or say, " Mmmm...". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19144983Can you imagine 6 million people in a swimming pool! Hope they don't all take a crafty leak!!
Some very interesting shots here from a photography point of view:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/olympics/picturegalleries/9461272/London-2012-Olympics-Photographers-tricks.html?frame=2303616Simon
I watched the last hour of the opening ceremony, was impressed by the scale of it. I have even watched more of the events than a ever thought I would, but one thing that baffles me is, why is there horse riding/equestrian events in the Olympics?......I always thought the point of the Olympics was a test of the human strength, agility and stamina?.....Surely the horse is the one being tested and not the human.....it's like making Formula One or Power boat racing an Olympic event....
