Cyclists Rule at Games

Another good (ish) day for our cyclists at the Velodrome. Sir Chris Hoy powered home in the Kieron like as if it was the last 32 of a Ryan Quigley solo. Young Laura Trott took the Omnium - the comparison was Carol Kidd making her mark at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival back in the 1980's.
But Victoria Pendleton! she was rail-roaded. Elbowed by the Aussie, whom she beat, only to be disqualified, it was little wonder that she showed little fight in the next match.
Her second DQ of the games, and the feeling was that this was Billie Holiday on wheels getting on the wrong side of those officials sulking at Britain's success in what were, once, their events.
Oh yes and we won the Triathlon - but not before the judges put the boot in again on Brownlee Minor who finished third - Monk being refused his Cabaret Card in NYC springs to mind with these judges (perhaps one was from Lancashire?)

Nice to see Team GB doing so well and the great sense of national pride engendered. I've got absolutely fed up with never ending national doom and gloom this past few years, mostly exaggerated and blown up by media frenzy and the desire to sell copy at ANY cost, even if it brings down the country. One example today - on the usually reliable BBC, who described Greggs rather modest fall in profits, in a very competetive market, as a SLUMP. From 17.3 mill down to 16.5 mill. A slump?? No wonder confidence is low and, as we all know, confidence makes the world of difference. Just ask Team GB.
