As 'Team GB' I think we do pretty well at most sports don't we? We're well represented in Rugby, Golf, Athletics and probably more that I can't be bothered to type.

9 gold! :shock:

I reckon that if Bradley Wiggins wants to he could win a tour. Awesome performance today though.

Cavendish for the green jersey this year, I'm off to the bookies! :lol:

Dunno who said this first but Brits are only good at sports where we can sit down doing them.

Because we're clean.

Sorry for my cynicism.



Superb display by the track team though, simply superb!

Bradley Wiggins in a real ambassador for clean. If he can dominate the field like he did today it holds a real hope for the future of the sport.
Many of those you watched this week will be on pro tour buses over the next few years.

Good time ahead I predict!
