That's the effect of a home crowd ... Oh, and hundreds of £millions in lottery grants.

My other brother lives in Malaysia ....

Team GB are doing us proud . It been a while since we could feel so proud of our nations abilities. I think Danny Boyle sowed the seeds of pride in the opening ceremony and team GB are reaping the harvest for us

I do hope we can reclaim our Union flag post olympics and fly it with pride once more; away from all the negative influences that have hijacked its use for past too many years.

.... and I bring you all back to my postings of the last year or so bemoaning the decision not to build a new swimming pool at Haslingden Sports Centre. The next generation of Olympic swimmers need quality facilities not a landscaped lump of concrete!!!

Rossendale Borough Council hang your heads in shame.

And one of the worst 'club' athletics facilities in Lancashire.

Way to lower the feelgood factor of the games.

Bitter torn and twisted are we?
