Just watched Michael Phelps (Men's Swimming Team USA) come in second and the world record for gold medals in three consecutive Olympic events slips through his fingers. So disappointing. They were saying he didn't train for these Olympic Games. Not sure it was such a smart idea. Bet he's kicking himself now. We will see if he becomes the most "decorated" Olympic athlete. For that, he still has a chance.

Phelps got 19 medals. Congrats! He has a chance for more - three events to go — the 200 individual medley, the 100 butterfly and the 4x100 medley relay.

Those pictures are great, thanks for posting them. I wouldn't see them otherwise. I mean, I would't look for them online. :)

Sorry to hear that Markotik.  Is there not a website you can go and watch/catch up on it?  Are you able to watch on the BBC online?

Normally you can't watch the BBC online if you are outside the UK. But I've found a way around that ;) If anyone is interested I can share a link.

That's fantastic news Johnny.  Thank you so much - it means that everyone can see everything.

Check out this - Jessop House Games.  The residents are aged up to 100....I hope it makes you smile like it made me smile.

The Jessop House Games are amazing, thanks for sharing that!

I remember that we used to have our own Olympics when I was a kid. I used to gather the kids from the neighbourhood and have competitions, setting records and so on. I remember I had a notebook in which I was writing down all the performances. We didn't have all the Olympic sports represented though, just running, long jump, high jump and a few others. 

My grandma banned the boxing competition after my cousin punched another kid pretty hard in the stomach. It was a knock-out though :)
