I have let Hayden stay up (its almost 1:30am) to see the BMX riding. One of our neighbours told her she was too big for her bike... and I wanted her to see that real live ADULTS ride the same sized BMX bike as she does.... AND that real live adults ride bikes at the Olympics! Must say.... those little pedal pushing ones in the yellow colours are winning more than their fair share of heats
The crashes are sickening! Not ALOT of summer olympic sports where you see stretcher bearers on a regular basis.
And the long distance open water swim on the Serpentine brings it home HOW fast these guys go.... motorboats to keep up with them after TEN kilometers????

The news presenter was talking about the medal table, showing America (quite rightly), to be at the top of the table, with China in second place.
He mentioned (and the graphic showd), 'that Russia is in distant third' ...
Eh? EH? The UK & Ireland are in third place! We have 26 gold medals, while Russia has 17!
