    How come Scott is now only "virtually guaranteed" gold? I thought it was a given?

    I believe that he does have to compete in the final race to get the gold. If he were to fail to turn up for some reason, presumably he wouldn't get anything.

    I've really had enough of the cycling. 50 minutes of the Omnium was mind-numbing last night. I actually don't know how physically they can ride around that track for that amount of time and not get piss bored.

    Is there any mountain biking this year? I loved that in 2012.

    Mountain biking is on Saturday and Sunday.

    I didn't mind the long Omnium race, but then I still watch Formula 1, so I have a very high tolerance for tedious racing carried out by a bunch of total arseholes.

    The BMX is also a good watch mainly because it's total carnage

    That was pretty harsh for them to DQ the british open water swimming guy.

    I think I've punctured Mr Shirl's MAX WHITLOCK FANTASIES by pointing out he is only FIVE FOOT FOUR

    OH DEAR

    I can't bear to watch another American robot and an Italian called Ferrari steal AmTink's medal.

    What Gymnast medals were actually expected? Louis in the Pommell and maybe a bronze in the men's team event?

    From what I read, I was expecting two medals in the pommel, but with Whitlock over Smith.

    (Plus the possible team bronze).

    Max was expected to get a bronze in the floor.

    Great stuff from Amy, is she the youngest ever British medallist?

    Another guaranteed medal will be for Nicola Adams, the semi finalists who don't win get a bronze each.

    That Barbara lady looks like she could handle herself in a fight down the Deacon's Arms.

    Also how fucked off will Hope Solo be if Sweden get gold.

    Oh fuck off. 0-0 at 90 minutes plus extra time. Just go to penalties without the torture in between. I maintain that Football is the most boring, uneventful sport overall.
