I'm hooked, can't remember ever being so engrossed before. Heroic success's and failures abound. Just watched the womens tri and the lightweight sculls, I was on the edge of my seat, thrilling races if not the best outcome for GB.

:lol: PArticulalry like the medal table story. I take it theres no way to view BBC I player? The coverage has been excellent over here*. I think I have something like 30 HD channels, albeit not all showing stuff at the same time.


EDIT:*bar the road race.

Thats a nice amount of channels to have. We are getting mixed up with just the 2 as there is a lot to cram in! Me and the mrs arent sports people really but seem to always watch stuff like the olympics and athletics etc. when it is on.
Just as you begin to learn the rules etc. for different disciplines, it finishes!
Paralympics next aswell, when are the winter olympics on? I like those too.

yeah, they block the bbc stuff from Australian IP's... but there are ways around it, GF was watching the much complained about equestrian the other day, I've put up with some dodgy steam stuff...
but for the XC i'll probably switch it o, only want to watch the tri, marathon and XC...

What a win in the women's pursuit! Can 2012 get any better for British cycling?
