Bloody hell, it was an educated guess but I'm still pretty surprised. I'll do another prediction same time tomorrow and see if it pays off again.

Sarah, why did you say Gold for USA and Michael Phelps? It's a relay, It's not about one guy, no matter how well known he is.

France choked !! Great, more American gloating and bringing up how the French were trash talking before the race. You gotta love the unbiased commentary.

Talk about save the best 'til last - Mary King pulled out the ride of her life in the worst conditions of the day to deliver everything and more than we could have hoped for - more than worthwhile waiting up 'til 4.30am! Well done Mary and Cavvy!!!

I agree with it. The athletic elite are just as worthy as anyone.

Evening/morning folks. Brit living in New York here. Just wanted to share with you that listening to the NBC commentators when we took the gold in that ladies 400m was one of the funniest things I've ever heard. It was all over with 100 to go...or so they thought! We've already endured them gloating about one of their swimmers with Dutch parentage who chose the US 'because he wanted to be part of the best'.

Still, it was all back on track for the men's relay. What a race!!! I was begging for the French to do it but you've got to tip your hat to the Americans. Great stuff. What's with the swimming suits though. Anyone else finding them a tad garish?

I think Adlington is sure to win at two more medals (Gold & Silver perhaps?), and must surely be about to become a very, very well known British sports superstar.

They lost to China by 14 points roughly the same time as we were cheering and shouting and waking up friends, family & girlfriends.

I've gone back to watching the cross-country for the missus, though I'm completely lost as to how the British are doing or who else she expects me to look out for.

Maybe if I make it up then she won't notice...
