    Just saw the replay of the 4 x 100m relay. Simbine is seriously quick (as if it wasn't already proved in the individual 100m). The way he hauled in the English runner was crazy! A better third leg and we'd have walked the gold.

    It's so amazing to see us competing on this stage now. When the commentators consider you a powerhouse of athletics, you know you're onto something good.

    We just need more backing now from sponsors and government and we can surely take it to the Americans and the Jamaicans.
    Whether you're a happy smiler or a furious weeper; king of the jungle or a tiny creeper, we're all equal in the eyes of the reaper.

    farkin 'ell,look at Simbine...he makes the rest of them look like they walking down the final stretch! takes over 3 or 4 contestants?
    surely one of the best endings i've seen in a sprint race.

    Ugh, Blitzboks! Threw away a 14 - 0 halftime lead against England in the bronze medal match eventually going down 21-14.
