Awwww

Silver. So close.

14 events
13 boats
13 finals
4 golds
2 silvers
3 bronze

Disappointing finish but an excellent haul of medals from the rowing.

Surely they will be gutted with a silver, but considering what happened in the first attempt, silver is better than nothing

I don't find the track stuff very exciting at all, especially the sprints.

Ah jeez. I'll have to look out for that.

Anyone know if there's a 100m 2nd round or is it straight to the semis?

Too right, just goes to show how much they wanted that gold. Most would be happy with the silver.

They haven't let anyone down.

Great how Inverdale called time on the interview and comforted them telling them silver was a great achievement and they didn't let anyone down.

Also, you know if this were Sky they'd have carried on asking questions anyway and loved the added drama of two blokes breaking down with disappointment.

The final is gonna be insane. Bolt, Blake, Gatlin, Gay, Powell and now Bailey with every chance. Wowzers. Reckon all 8 will go under 10.

No doubt IMO, having seen Bailey's time. I didn't think so assuming wind and rain, but fuck me. Fast track. Come on Usain.
