I've been trying to watch Fencing, but I'm too lazy :P I've just been watching whatever's on Channel 12, which means mainly gymnastics, volleyball, and swimming.

Woo! I will watch that via PC! Yes, yes they are :P I reckon we can do it - come on women, show us men how to play Football! :D

Hope you enjoy the game! :3

So, I heard GB got Silver in the Eventing Team Jumping final? Yay :D

EDIT: Well proud of the Women in our Football team - such great players! Better than our men's team xD

So, what did everyone think of the final results? And what about the Closing Ceremony? I thought it was really cool :P Eric Idle was a LEGEND! xD

I'm just glad Australia managed to sneak into the top 10! We had a pretty bad start and SO many silvers that could have been gold. We did terrible in swimming this year, but it was nice to see some non-traditional medals in athletics and sailing!

I kind of fast forwarded through most of the closing ceremony since it was basically a concert and I'm not big on music. xD

Also well done to Great Britain. After not getting any gold til day 5 or so, they did great!

Yeah, it was a shame about all of those Silvers D: But at least you were able to compete for Gold all of those times :D It goes to show that you Australians are real contenders - I reckon you'll get loads of Golds in Rio :3

xD I loved it. My favourite part had to be Eric Idle though - Monty Python's Holy Grail is a classic, "Always look on the bright side of life" was just perfect to perform xD

Was it Day 5? I thought it was maybe Day 3? I can't remember xD But yeah, we completely dominated the Cycling events at the Velodrome xD I was pleased with that. And I knew that Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis would get Gold after seeing them on TV about a year or two ago and watching them get Gold in some athletic event (I think it was European or something?) :3 I'm just really happy with how it all turned out xD

And the British Football? I was so proud of the men's team (the women's team were amazing, might I add) because they were put together a week before the Olympics started and they were a mess in their only friendly against Brazil. Then they improved tremendously over the next few games, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them play - I hope the England team learn a thing or two from them. To be honest, I want more British football now, don't care much about England xD

Saw the lead singer from Elbow on Thursday, was at the BBC for an audition and he walked in and gave someone a CD.

Eric Idle & Rowan Atkinson both ruled the Olympics, fact.
