The highlight for today was Katherine Grainger winning a gold medal after three consecutive Olympic Silvers, I think anyone would be hard put to say she didn't deserve it.

Rebecca Addlington became the most decorated British Swimmer ever, which was also a somewhat amazing feat in a sport which is separated by hundredths of seconds!

Enjoy the Games!

    1. I love the Olympics! I love that the minor sports get a chance to shine. I love that swimming's televised. I love the fact that everyone has to work together to get us a place on the medal table. It's my favourite sporting event :P So I have to admit that when it's on I tend to watch it obsessively!
