Excellent Olympics. Just what it should have been.
Brits definitely benefited from some home field advantage. They were giving out the stats yesterday but they won considerably more medals this year than games passed.
Just catching a rerun of the women's volleyball gold medal game. Not sure who wins but Brazil is putting a hurtin on those US ladies.
