But of a shock on the road race for cycling.... But he is a favorite! I am trying not to spoil for Dylan!
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

Just watched men's 400m swimming. Awesome. And the story of the winner (won't spoil it for anyone) and his insane workouts you all gotta watch video or read about this guy. Proves when you work harder than everyone else it pays off!

A tip for Olympics and watching most sports online just use twitter and search often many people post links to free live coverage of sporting events.

I'm watching the men weightlifting 69kilo class now and it's already been really, really dramatic!
I know there is a lot of fun in supporting your own coutries team (go team GB lol!) but I'm in awe of every hardworking, dedicated, focused and talented individual that is stepping up the the plate wherever they place in the competition. There has been brilliant sport-personship demonstrated too, they all congatulate each other which is so nice to see, winning and losing with grace and they have all had to overcome mental and physical barriers to be there. And it's more than just the competitors, the coaches and training team at their side, the brilliant audiences wanting competitors to do well, the judges and adjudicators making sure all is fair and to standard, the staff and all the hard working volunteers involved in event - it's truly epic and inspiring!
I've watched some of the swimming and the archery, I want to catch some more swimming and deffo some triathlon coverage and squeeze in some boxing and martial arts and some paraolympian events.. The UK has the best blind footballing teams in the world!

2 things: 1 women's wrestling is badass. 2. What happened to Spain's men's soccer team? They one the world cup, then the eurocup, and then didn't even get passed the group stages in their first Olympics? Huge for Mexico making the final. I'm guessing Neymar and Brazil beat them 3-0. The final is on Aug. 11th for anyone interested.

Wow, just watch the mens soccer final. Amazing that Mexico beat Brazil I was expecting 3-0 Brazil. Mexico wins the gold 2-1. They scored in the first 30 seconds of the match too. Huge win for them. Viva la Mexico. Sorry Brazil still no gold medals for your country.
PS I love TiVo.
