Another excellent programme last night by the BBC, this time on Vicky Pendleton
 
Should be a good contest between her and Meares (Australia)
 
Didn't realise how much was going on behind the scenes and also the problems with her relationship by her now Fiance , Australian Scott Gardener, I don't see why there should of been an issue???? At least he's back on the team now, and she's getting his full support.
 
She's going to retire after this, so hopefully she'll get her last Gold Medal.

bit of an anti-climax for the GB mens team, Mark Cavendish only 29th!
probably all worn out (the team) from the Tour de France.
 
has Vicky Pendleton raced yet??
see 'Armitage' I think her name was, got the first medal (silver) for GB I think???

Great Wiggo got the 2nd gold!
 
I got an email from an Aussie friend in Sydney, saying he's half Aussie you know!!!!
(his dad was Australian) he's born in Belgium.
He also told me the Aussies were sponsored by Orica (ex UK ICI) in the tour de France, who my hubby used to work for in Botany Bay, then Melbourne H.O.

I don't think I can take much more of this. What with the cycling, swimming and the wonderful track events last night I was tossing and turning all night after the excitement. Had to get up at 4 abd have a cup of tea. So that meant the dog had to go out; which she did with bad grace, blaming me for waking her up. I went back to bed, didn't go off until after 5am and slept till 9.45. I'm shattered! Sport good for your health? Not mine!  Think we'll go to a carboot later on to get  a different atmosphere!
