Put your feet up, ME!

Such a shame Mo is going so late tonight :-( The women's team sprint cycling will be good though and that's on a bit earlier.

Mo was brilliant, as usual!

Bored with the marathon coverage today (seen enough of them in my time :lol: ) so watching the showjumping. The Moroccan guy has the most bad-tempered horse I've ever seen, the whole way round it looked like Kinna just before she bucks someone off!! :buck:

Didn't watch the SJ -I did watch the marathon because I thought the Americans ran a really gutsy race. I'd have got bored if it had all been about the Kenyans and Ethiopians. Sorry, but I can't 100% believe everything I see with them after the doping scandal. It's great if there were disqualifications for spurs/whip -obviously not great for the horses subjected to it, but I'm pleased they're monitoring it. Missed the Janapese rider ME -pea on an elephant?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

It is annoying seeing all the empty seats everywhere. The locals can't afford to go. I suppose they can't release them for free now because there's still a chance they could sell some, but surely the more people they get into the stadia means the more people buying food and drinks etc.
