I get that. But I'm so happy Vos won after 5 silver medals at the world championship.
The last minute of that race was so TENSE! She was so CLOSE.
Heartbroken for Paula Radcliffe. Such a shame.
Oh this is devastating for Paula. It was always going to be a long shot but I guess that's her Olympic dream over.
Are there any other GB gold hopes today other than Addlington?
Beth Tweddle is through to the final of the Uneven Bars.
Beth Tweddle destroyed the rest of the field on Uneven Bars morelike.
Beth's performance was brilliant. Is the final tonight?
Nope, it's not until next Monday. Hopefully Beth wins the medal before she retires.
Could they have repeated that Chinese girl's vault landing any more?
Bloody hell at those cheers for Adlington. What an atmosphere
The BBC commentators keep saying she's looking 'OK' - a bit more enthusiasm please
YAY!!! She got a bronze...
They were very enthusiastic at the end.
But YAY all the same.
Yes! They got the tone just right at the end
Good result, the 800m she'll stand more of a chance of defending
I almost slipped a disc in the excitement!
Obviously she's one of her finest athletes... But she totally looks like a walrus.
Fantastic for Becky, especially considering she wasn't expecting anything a few hours ago.
"It's a great lane" What does that EVEN MEAN?
I wish when the swimmers got introduced and come out that they were already out of their tracksuits. Then you could play that inevitable yes/no game in your head much more easily.
In Glasgow "it's a great lane" either means you won't get raped or it's a quiet one to get up to all sorts, I'd imagine.
Well of course that guy won, with THAT chin.
Thorpe is so humourless. Completely AGOG that Linekar could suggest he swam in a wetsuit (and basically cheated)
Thorpe is painful to watch. I still would, though.
Ooh that was a great relay, what an exciting finish!
Good on Becky, wonder if she's not just a little bit disappointed only to get the bronze...
Is that only our second medal so far?
Disappointed? She said herself this morning she wasn't even expecting to get a medal.
She must have lost by a NOSE. Or is it head and shoulders she advertises?
Australians fourth. Lol
She's worse than Tulisa.
At least they got to the final. Shit that we couldn't even get past the heats
So Thorpe can't win a gold so has decided to colour himself gold instead.
Ian Thorpe is more miserable than the QUEEN. He should be ASHAMED, etc. etc.
If you're being serious...
The fastest from the heats (in both swimming and running) get drawn lanes 3-6 where they can see each other and know how fast to go. In swimming it can be a bit different. Although in lane eight they can't see who is in front, they don't get slowed down by the wake left by the swimmers ahead of them.
Josh Taylor would certainly do for the weekend.
I'm all about the beach volleyball so far. It's been a revelation
