Olympics

What a great opening ceremony! Totally incomprehensible to the rest of the World.

A bit embarrassing to hear the BBC commentators this evening talking about the Men's Road Race which they clearly didn't understand at all. The reason Team GB couldn't help Cavendish win is simple- no other country seemed to want to do any work at the front. It doesn't matter how good your team of five is, you can't stay at the front for the whole race, pushing air aside for everyone else- you just end up exhausted. Simple physics really.


And how come we seem to have loads of empty seats?

That's what I've been wondering, kept hearing about how difficult it was to get seats and see tons and tons of open seats, even on the center court with Serena Williams playing.

I think its sad really that there are empty seats.... Especially when there are competitors who cant even get seats for their friends and family.

I know what you mean. The opening ceremony was a little stir crazy but quite epic in its execution.

So how did the 38-year-old Kazakh defeated the British cycling "dream team" ? Who did all the “air pushing” ?
