Get behind the dressage FFS.

 

Making 600Kg of independently minded muscle move in such a controlled manner takes incredible skill and touch.

Why does it matter how full the stadiums are?

 

It is disappointing that a country isn't embracing it.

 

Either way, great to see our team doing so well.

There's an element of political protest and boycott in Rio going on.

 

Some protesters in Rio have followed a strategy you will be unfamiliar with: a critical part of their protest is to not to scuttle off down the box office and start handing over cash to buy the very thing that they are protesting about.

I've been following the BBC coverage. Are there any blokes competing?

Not been watching the rowing, cycling, gymnastics, rugby sevens, shooting, swimming and kayaking then?

Currently above the Chinese and 2nd in Medal Table, if you excluded swimming we'd be top.

More golds to come tonight as well

I`m enjoying the cycling of course and I enjoy Chris Boardman`s knowledgeable insight. At the London Olympics he was alongside Hugh Porter and together they made the best commentating team for events at which they had both excelled and knew inside out. This time we have BBC place man Simon Brotherton, who is doing his best but annoyingly tends to mask his inexperience in cycling with a constant babble and arcane `facts` about the participants. It ain`t the same without High Porter, who was dumped by the BBC in 2013 - largely because he was 73 - and replaced by the younger man. It`s the Beeb being ageist again and once more the viewer/listener is the loser.

Is it time to return to here and mention Golf? :rolleyes:

 

What a personable fellow is Justin Rose - a credit to himself, to Hampshire and to golf.

Every track cyclist has won at least one medal.

We have absolutely smashed it so far. We are just too good at cycling. 51 medals so far. No nation have ever improved their medals tally after hosting it. We could make history!!

Put a tenner on the Kenny/Trott offspring for gold at Olympics 2044.

What chance he/she will be a concert pianist ?

Oh Lutalo :(

 

It doesn't get any better the next day.

 

That might be the most gutted I've been watching sport.

 

All he had to do was step back at the restart, nothing the other guy could have done.

 

He thought it was already over, let his guard go just slightly, didn't finish it off, and now he has to work for four years just to give himself a chance of putting that right.

 

:(

great effort by the GB athletes in a place where it was seemingly an average games

 

I think the next one in Tokyo will out the games back on the map with a well hosted and spectacular festival
