Bronze in Canoe Sprint - Men's Kayak Double (K2) 200m, won by Liam Heath and Jon Schofield.

Bronze in Diving - Men's 10m Platform, won by Thomas Daley.

For me today I loved watching the finals for the diving, and I thought the medal placement's were justified. I loved the way that those in the Bronze and Gold medal positions were elated, but the Chinese who'd entered as the World Number One came away annoyed with himself for his Silver medal position.

It was good fun watching the Canoe Sprint's as well, I'm really glad that the Olympics showcases some much more obscure sports, and my only question is why they do this by removing other events? Why not just add to them, people WANT to watch our athletes perform, and in as many events as possible, it's a fact which simply baffles me. Anyway...

Enjoy the Games!
