In limbo...
That american swimmer, Martin Phelps or whatever it is, is 6ft3, but has the same length body as an 6ft8 man! How tiny must his legs be?? Apparently the best build for a swimmer!

Went to bed at 4:45 - up an hour later, now sat at work absolutely shattered.... Bloody Olympics!

Sadly missed the depositing of AT at the beginning....

Well done the Brits!

Oh no - you missed the unceremonious dumping of AT on the deck?? Sure there might be a vid somewhere on the net! Mike and Starky certainly kept reiterating it plenty on the commentary much to everyone's delight!

Hugely emotional watching Mary come across the finish line.

Sorry, but I think that the time allowance was just madness. Thank goodness everything seems to have come home in one piece.
