Charlotte Dujardin equalled the most number of Olympic medals won by a British women, by getting a bronze in the dressage. Now she is a great Olympian.

I liked the line about her new horse in the BBC preview of The Olympics....."his name Gio and he dances on the sands".

Ahem:
In the history of the summer Olympics, Northern Ireland has only ever won three gold medals with legendary athlete Dame Mary Peters taking the top prize in 1972 and hockey heroes Stephen Martin and Jimmy Kirkwood gold medal winners in 1988.

I think we might be finishing below the Convicts, this time. Losing to them in rowing, FFS. How can those uncouth yobbos be beating us in that toffs' sport?

Has there been any warming of public opinion to the games in Japan now that they're winning shitloads of medals?

Lauren Price in the boxing looks very impressive, a good bet for a gold.

Not to mention Ireland pipping GB to bronze in the women's fours and the uncouth Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy favourites for gold in the double sculls tomorrow.

Number one seed, also capped by Wales at football and won kickboxing titles. Impressive lady.

Mark Kinsella's daughter (Alice) won a bronze medal in the gymnastics today.

For GB. Also Charlie Haughey's grand niece won silver in the 200m freestyle for Hong Kong.

Gymnastics is the sport I like least in the Olympics so of course the BBC have to show every single second. It'll be the same with the shitey ice dancing in Beijing next year.

I think you can claim that one BV if you apply the Greater Manchester theory of geographical proximity.

Surely then we can also claim the McKeown, McKeon and McLoughlin that have won medals for Australia and of course Duffy for Bermuda?

Your Irish diaspora allows leeway here. Iím claiming anything with a Union Flag in the corner.

Bronze for Charlotte Dujardin in literally the worst sport ever conceived.
