I've gone from being Olympic sceptic to Olympic fan. What a day of performances from the GB team, culminating in the long jump, 10,000 (which was electric), and of course our very own Jess Ennis. It was plain that she would win the Gold before the race stared, but knowing that she had a 15 second advantage, and being overtaken on the last bend, I thought, here we go, she'll just cruise home in fifth. But to kick again, and outrun the rest was a moment of pure sporting magic. What a star!
Just goes to show that despite all the over-commercialisation, the Olympics as a sporting even is still shining through, and we have done the Olympics as well as anyone...
