Still Medalling

Chris Hoy, Jamie Staff and Jason Kenny won Gold for Britain in the Cycling team sprint.

Rebecca Adlington got a second Gold in the swimming - the 800m freestyle - the first British woman to get two swimming medals in one Games. She managed to smash the World record in the process. That man Phelps got his seventh Gold. The Brits have done reasonably well in the early rounds of the athletics. I have been amazed at how many World Records have gone in these Olympoics in a wide variety of events. Often, winning events involves a different technique to smashiing world records but in Bejing they have done both. I wonder if the 100m sprint will be a record.
