Thus far I like them. Even more so I like the new feature offered on my AT&T U-Verse; multiple channels on one screen, etc. rather impressive...

I think that the ending more than made up for the beginning.

The Brits did a decent job in their opening ceremony, but I agree that it paled in comparison to the Beijing opening ceremony. I don't think any country can top what China did in 2008.

Only thing I really liked was Mr. Bean in Chariots of Fire, my Chinese and Mongolian friends seemed to think that was the best part as well. Arctic Monkeys was terrible, but then I always hated britpop. Overall I thought it was a rather self indulgent showcase of Britain in the past.

Looks like we already have some drama:
Park Tae-hwan Disqualification: South Korea Files Protest Over Swimmer's False Start

Been watching most of the day. Nice that it's early in the morning.
Loving the swimming. Basketball, eh. Cycling, eh. Looking forward to the gymnastics.

Edit: Woops, looks like he won his appeal:

It's good they reversed that decision, It didn't look like he had a false start.

I'm no judge of any sort, but "judging" by what the sportscasters were saying and seeing it, I think they made the right decision by reversing it.

I'm English, from Hackney. I'm not being bias, but the opening ceremony was very well done. I will say this, there were a lot of things shown, that to me, unless you're from the UK, you just simply wouldn't get.

Anyway, in other news, it is a shame that Spain lost today; to me they played better, even more so in the second half. Mata was outstanding...

Serena Williams just crushed everyone on her way to Olympic Gold. It's amazing how she is so much better than the top two seeds. It wasn't like Azarenka and Sharapova played poorly. Serena just played so much better.

True! I like Serena, albeit I didn't appreciate the 'shouting' & 'laughing' towards Sharapova at the end of the match...

Watched water polo and womens indoor volley ball yesterday to watch USA win both, I was worried for volley ball against Turkey, they were up 13 - 7 and US was not looking good, but then they made a come back and won all 3 rounds.

Having only played water polo in gym class a few times years ago I was left confused for much of the game, where sometimes it was alright to dunk the person with the ball and other times they would get an exclusion, I just wasn't sure what was going on the whole time haha

Medal count is looking good for GBR.

Considering USA and China are about 50 times our size, coming 3rd is a great feat.

The US is five times GB and China 20 but hey close enough

Ireland only has two medals from boxing so far (what metal they will be has yet to determined), so I've been cheering on other European teams. Some great stuff from the Brits I must say, hard not to be delighted for them

Anyway, I think this picture is quite interesting

Well 5.37 and 22.98 to be closer to it...

...and only have 1.52 and 1.68 times our golds respectively.

...and 1.47 / 1.51 total respectively.


So to put it into a meaningful perspective:

Country --- gold Medals per capita*----total medals per capita*
GBR---------0.37--------------------------0.74
USA---------0.09--------------------------0.20
CHN---------0.02--------------------------0.05

So really, USA beats China and Great Britain beats USA, proportionately.






*capita represented in millions.

Danny Boyle had stated on numerous occasions that you could never top Beijing (given the fact that the state pushes its people to the breaking point when it comes to things like this) and that he wanted a very British opening ceremony that celebrated Britain's past and culture.

My only disappointment was with NBC cutting away from the memorial of the London, Tube bombings and had an interview with Michael Phelps instead. I could imagine people chagrin in the US had the same happened elsewhere talking about, say 9/11. Bad show NBC, bad show...

Yep its all over for GBR. Finished 3rd in the (gold) medal count. Compared to 10th in 2004.
