The Olympics Super Saturday

Yesterday, dubbed super Saturday by the sports pundits, marked the midway point of the London Olympics.

I will admit, I was an Olympics sceptic, thinking that it wouldn't be a success and was a waste of money. How wrong could I have been.

Yesterday, Team GB won six gold medals, two in rowing, one in cycling and three in athletics. An amazing achievement by all the athletes! Team GB are now standing third in the medal table behind the USA and China.

My personal favourite yesterday was the Women's Team Pursuit in the track cycling, a gold medal and breaking the world record (this is the sixth time in a row in competitive racing that this team have broken the world record).

Congratulations to everyone and thanks for the amazing memories.
