    Congrats USA, win over Lithuania, not easy..I think USA didn;t treat their rivals with enough respect and they had a hard time at the ending heh...

    Still a win is a win... but I was hoping for something more...

    LaShawn Merrit's out of the running for gold with his pulled hamstring. I'm cheering for Kirani James now. The men's 100m heats had a pretty slow started. Ryan Bailey had the fastest time with a 9.88, which is a surprise.

    It's possible my mate presented her medal-he was giving them out at the shooting, not sure which part but it might have been him!!

    Great Britain must've had a great night, with Mo Farrah, Jess Ennis, and Greg Rutherford getting gold in the 10K, Heptathlon, and long jump respectively. I'm a little disappointed in Rutherford not going near the long jump record though. The race of the ages will be tomorrow, the 100M final!

    Murray is destroying Federer. A mix of great play by Murray and Federer not being on form. It's looking very very good for Murray. 2 sets to 0, 4 games to 2 in the 3rd set. Surely the gold is in the bag....

    Edit: Gold for Murray! Brilliant!

    WOW, hats off to Andy Murray for winning his first major ever and ending the brits 74 year losing spree in tennis. Def thought Federer would have won gold.

    ^ Could not believe that match. There were stretches where Andy was making shots like I've never seen before. He was playing at a level I've never seen him at for awhile.

    Massive yes to Andy Murray. He's done Scotland and the UK proud today!

    Yes, Federer was a bit off the pace today but the way Andy played I think he would have destroyed him regardless. Even Djokovic didn't stand a chance playing some sweet tennis as well. It's a bit early to call but if Andy keeps this form up he way have a shot at the US Open!

    Anyway, team GB third in the medals table. Not bad for a small island of 60 million (compared to the US's 300 million and China's 1.3 billion at least!). Looks like I didn't take that silly citizenship test for nothing! :)

    I think Borat has ruined me, during the whole time Kazakstan was winning the long jump I couldn't get Cohen's made up anthem from my head.

    USA vs Canada women's football. One of the most entertaining games I've ever seen.

    USA with a last minute extra time winner. USA deserved it but Canada put in such a massive effort, a couple of players playing on after some nasty looking injuries. Fantastic game.

    There's one thing I don't like about huge international sports events like the Olympics or the World Cup, and that's how it seems like all my non-sports-enthusiast friends are suddenly experts on who the contenders are and whatnot, and I know those motherfuckers don't keep up regularly with that stuff. It's like they're regurgitating what the announcers say.
