    Oh absolutely! I think my all time favourite is in the little known World Indoor 4x400m gold medal for the British women where former Olympic medallist literally just SQUEAKS for the last 10 seconds of the race cause she's just TOO excited :D

    One round of judo is over in 3 minutes. Gymnastics takes like 2 hours. I find it all very hard to get my head round.

    Surely we're in an age where the broadcasters can choose which rotation they want to show.

    I wondered this. I've been enjoying the gymnastics, but it's super frustrating.

    It's the taking part that counts when you don't win. Right now, it's the winning that counts.

    Does Whitlock have high or low scoring apparatus left to go?

    This gymnast commentator needs to be more exciting like the diving one so I can quickly tell if it was good or bad.

    Is there some kind of national pride at stake if the news isn't shown on BBC One?

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is some sort of rule that says that BBC1 must show the evening news in some form, given that they interrupt things like Comic Relief to show it as well.

    Whittock in 3rd. Probably won't move up. Might move down.

    It's 0-0 in the lesbian rugby but Argentina have had a man sin binned. Can Team GB take advantage and do it for Simon Weston?

    The rugby's gone to extra time as no one managed to score.

    Is the rugby good? It was a sensation in Glasgow apparently. 140,000 attendance over two days :disco:

    Not as good as normal rugby. GB just hit the post from a drop kick.

    And they've scored a try! That's put them into the QFs.

    Sorry, you're right - they're now in the semis. Argentinian players crying - tough shit loves, we've got the SF place AND the Falklands.
