Can't see any update on that.Wouldn't be the first time athletes have tried to get asylum,happened at the Sydney games in 2000 and also at the Comonwealth games in Manchester so nothing unusual really,in the scheme of things i dont suppose our authorities will be too worried by another handful of 'illegals',they've probably already got a few council houses ready just in case.

I could of got a ticket for the Athletics tonight but it was only one and they wanted £725 squid for it and thats too much even for a man of my extensive means and Mrs Lioned would not be pleased if i didnt get her a ticket as well so i had to let it go.I will be content now to wait till the next time the Olympics comes to London in about 2072 when i will be quite old !

Olympic Parade...............

Post  Lioned on Wed 8 Aug - 22:02

There is to be a Celebration of Team GB's great success in the games on Monday September 10th there will be an open top bus parade for all 900 Athletes and paralympians and maybe a Prince and Princess or two (so that will be a lot of buses).
It is estimated that several million people will converge on London to join the Celebrations (so that should keep our perennial moaning minnies happy for a bit longer) as London will come to a standstill once more.

I think it should be a bank holiday and no doubt a petition will be started soon.

The riders are a bit too posh for my liking but they've done well and the bloke who had a broken neck has done very well to get over that and help GB win a Gold medal.
You have to have a lot of money to be a Horsey person at that level i think.

Here is the link for the Celebrations being planned for those who are looking forward to London coming to its knees and grinding to a halt again as the infrastructure crumbles under the strain of the masses intent on enjoying themselves.

That certainly is an amazing horse,now sadly deceased but the rider is now coaching other Olympic riders i think.

Got to say i've always thought Horses to be very graceful but a bit dumb in the league table of animal intelligence and even that video hasn't changed my mind really.

Yes.It is a real shame when they break a leg they seem to prefer to put the horse down rather than try to fix it which is very difficult and lengthy process apparently,not like a dog or cat which can usually manage quite well with three legs a horse cannot.

Team GB

Post  Lioned on Fri 10 Aug - 20:41

43% of shops in London are now reporting an increase in business since the start of the Olympics.Paralympic tickets are selling out fast.The rest of the World is in awe at the success of the Games,packed stadiums and Gold medals.It is being said its the best Olympic games ever and has put the 'Great' back in Great Britain.The traffic has run smoothly the trains have run on time and coped comfortably with the crowds and no ones gone on strike.Britain has put on a show that its hard to imagine any other country in the World even getting close to.Its a good time to feel proud to be British.Bit of a shame we have a mascot that looks like a one eyed penis and an oily tory like coe who's going to try and take all the credit but hey what a great Country this can be when it can be bothered.

Just watched an interview with Nicola Adams who won the Gold in boxing. I don't know who the Interviewer was, but Nicola was taken in a Rolls Royce for Breakfast at the Savoy. The car stopped for a minute and the window down so wellwishers could congratulate her . At the Savoy Nicola said she was still on a high and admitted she rode to the Olympic Village on a double decker bus.!!

We're no longer wondering how Sunday's Olympic closing show is going to rival the spectacular opening ceremony.

Organisers have called upon the world's most famous fivesome to ensure the 2012 Games go out with a bang.

It turns out all five of the Spice Girls are going to be performing. Does it get much better than that?

Well... yes actually, it does.

Because we've managed to get hold of some snaps of the ladies rehearsing inside the stadium.

Victoria, Geri, Emma, Mel C and Mel B looked on top of their game as they practiced their entrance on Friday.

Oh, and they just so happen to be strapped to podiums on top of five illuminated black cabs.

Amazing.

We really Wannabe there on Sunday now.

An Olympics Of Amazing Achievements


As one of the most successful Games in recent decades draws to a close, Sky's Ian Dovaston looks back at the triumphs and tears.


3:54am UK, Sunday 12 August 2012

Mo Farah made history after winning his second gold of 2012







!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");

})();




By Ian Dovaston, Sports News Correspondent

It's been the most extraordinary Olympic Games. From first to last, it's been a wonderful time to be British too.

Not only has this country shown it can host a major event - in fact THE major event - but also that its sportsmen and women can grace the stage.

Before London 2012 even began, UK Sport had done research showing that a home Olympics could expect a 25% uplift in medal-winning.

That prediction has been borne out, or exceeded. From 19 gold medals (in Beijing) to 28 this time round, and from 47 medals to 62 in London. So far, of course!

There are misgivings to mention too - around the issues of funding, long-lasting legacy and school sport. But let's focus on the triumphs, at least initially.
The Queen delighted spectators when she appeared in the opening ceremony
The opening ceremony - how will the Queen and Mr Bean be topped at the closing gig? - was just a delight. It lit a flame literally, and spectacularly, but also figuratively in the hearts of a nation who had suffered weeks of dark talk about Olympic security and traffic jams, and all that on the back of months of complaints over ticketing.

There were four days of wondering where that first elusive gold would come from, but when inevitably it did arrive, it began a headlong rush that only those clever number-crunchers at UK Sport might have predicted.

There are so many unforgettable moments.

That hour in the Olympic Stadium a week ago yesterday when Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford (the first British long jump winner since 1964) and Mo Farah struck gold was justifiably labelled the greatest session in British athletics history.

Super Saturday - they called it - since a record six British golds were won that day in total. It will be a very long time before we see that again.
Mo Farah and Usain Bolt imitated each other's victory salutes
And last night - the one, the only - Usain Bolt was pictured doing Mo Farah's own 'mobot' gesture - surely the ultimate tribute from an athlete who had just taken part in a Jamaican sprint relay world record.

We've seen Sir Chris Hoy crown his cycling career with a sixth gold, Bradley Wiggins win the unique double of Tour de France and Olympic time trial, Laura Trott become the first woman cyclist to win two gold medals at a single Games, rower Katherine Grainger finally swap bridesmaid silver for glorious gold, Victoria Pendleton bow out with gold and controversial silver and Ben Ainslie earn the title of the modern Olympic movement's greatest ever sailor.

All of them are immense achievements, and Ainslie - a winner of four gold medals, and a silver - richly deserves the honour of bearing the British flag at the closing ceremony.

There were some amazing firsts.
Twins Jonny (left) and Alistair Brownlee after their triathlon triumph
Tim Baillie and Etienne Scott were Britain's first gold medallists in white water canoeing. Can we ever forget the brothers Brownlee, Alistair walking nonchalantly over the finish line in Hyde Park already draped in the Union flag, and Jonathan two places behind?

Women's boxing entered the Olympic fray in London, and lo and behold, its first title was won by Nicola Adams, a flyweight from Leeds. In the equestrian events, Charlotte Dujardin became our most successful female rider, the first to win two Olympic golds. And Beth Tweddle is the first gymnast to win an Olympic medal for Britain.

Andy Murray beat Roger Federer to become the first British man to win Olympic tennis singles gold in over a century - on the Wimbledon Centre Court that occasioned such misery for the Scot against the very same opponent only 20-odd days earlier.

Then, more widely, Kenyan David Rudisha's sensational lowering of the 800 metres world record in the house that former two-lap specialist Lord Coe built was perhaps the most stunning achievement of the whole games. It was obscured, however, by Usain Bolt, his completion of an historic sprint double that same night and the accompanied gallivanting that so brilliantly promotes the sport to youngsters.
Record-breaking Olympian Michael Phelps
Oh, and what more can be said of swimmer Michael Phelps? Can 18 gold medals ever be beaten?

There were those depressing givens too - things you just knew you would see, but hoped you wouldn't. Britain's 4x100 metres relay team were unable to get a baton from A to B. (And why were the least experienced sprinters expected to get the final change right?).

And, of course, Team GB, since it was predominantly English, and had an English manager, would go out of the football in the quarter-finals on penalties.

What may also go down as a depressing given - though we shall reserve judgement in the hope we may be wrong, but we won't hold our breath - is the political posturing.

There are renewed noises about competitive sport in primary schools, though it remains to be seen - once the Olympic hullabaloo has died down, and that may take a surprisingly short time - whether those Prime Ministerial promises of more truly competitive sport between the ages of sex and 11 will come to fruition.
The Games have led to calls for more competitive sports in schools
There are still schools in this country - when the first suggestion of summer arrives - who ballot their Year 6 pupils on whether they would like a competitive or non-competitive sports day. Incredible, really.

When your son or daughter is not performing particularly well in maths or English, it's made painfully clear how far he or she lags behind. Everyone knows it. The teacher knows it, all the pupils know it and the parents find out.

Yet, for some reason, a culture has grown up where not-very-numerate Johnny is not allowed to give clever clogs Christopher a legitimate lesson on the sports field, to equal the score. There can surely be competition everywhere across the school curriculum. Children, by their nature, are competitive. That this has been denied in football or netball or athletics in primary schools - while it is openly encouraged in academic subjects - may well have injured the sporting prospects and the confidence of the very young.

The success of these Games has led David Cameron to announce that funding for Olympic sports will be maintained at the present level until the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Officers were snapped doing the Mobot at the Olympic Park
It remains to be seen whether each sport will maintain its current proportion of the funding cake.

The bulk of the annual £125m which UK Sport is given - to distribute as it sees fit - comes from the National Lottery. Since the advent of the Lottery in 1994, it has raised in the region of £6bn for sport.

Inevitably, much of that money will have come from those on lower incomes, and yet an elite sport like sailing has received a £23m slice of it for the years 2009 to 2013 while boxing gets less than half that figure.

Rowing, too - not really a sport open to the masses - gets £27m. And equestrian - also arguably elite - receives £13m.

The wisdom goes that UK Sport sends its funding in the direction of those disciplines most likely to realise Olympic medals. And, on the basis of London 2012, where sailing won one gold and four silver medals, rowing (four golds, two silvers, three bronzes) and equestrian (three golds, one silver, one bronze), there is of course merit in the argument if money for medals is all the Olympic Games is about.
Nicola Adams became the first Olympic champion in women's boxing
But perhaps through the gold medal efforts of Nicola Adams in the women's flyweight boxing, her sport might now receive a rise from the £9.5m it currently gets. You can only imagine that those who pay their money each week to the National Lottery might favour boxing over sailing, since it is much more likely to reach the people they live among.

And what about rewarding Jade Jones - Britain's first gold medallist in taekwondo since its introduction to the Olympics - by increasing the funding for her sport above the £4.8m it receives now? How many inner city taekwondo clubs might benefit and flourish, and how many young people's lives might be changed for the better if that were to happen now?

There is a chance to capitalise on the remarkable achievements of these last couple of weeks. It is an opportunity which must not be wasted, if bringing the Olympic Games to these shores was truly about legacy.
