On the whole the Olympics had been passing me by this time around. I'd kept half an eye on anything mildly interesting, but the 100m today was just something else.

It was astonishing, I'm now eagerly looking forward to the 200m races through the ealry part of this week and the final on Wednesday.

I also enjoy Michael Johnson's commentary, one of the finest athletes that ever lived, quite modest and comes across as a very pleasant chap.Glad the Beeb got him.

What makes it more astonishing is it's only this guys 9th senior competitive race at 100m. What will he be running in 4 years time?

He is also the only one currently capable of eclipsing Michael Johnson's 200m 19.32:D

Been watching it on and off - the 100m was amazing (I hope Glojo's predictions are not proven). Waiting for MotoGP at the mo..

Mrs B and Junior B currently watching Indonesia/China Badminton on the other laptop..

The real scary thing about Bolt is that he broke the world record jogging!. What time could he do if he really tried?

Been watching Table Tennis (I know!) but only get TV coverage once every four years.

Cycling - Go Team GB.

Some of the Gymnastics is amazing

And Womens Beach Volleyball :devil:

Remember when we had a decent showing in track & field, a distant memory now.
