Here Come The Girls...

Like everyone else, I've been watching the Olympics and i'm so, so proud of the ladies, we really do run the world! Watching the GB Cycling Team racing, I felt awful for Pendleton and Varnish after their disqualification for switching the lead outside the permitted zone in the team sprint especially having broken the world record in the qualifying. It happens though and the fact that the Chinese team, who've broken the world record twice in the competition, suffered the same fate illustrates thatVictoria Pendleton bounced back and her gold saw me jumping off the sofa and almost breaking my leg over the coffee table! Well done Victoria and good luck with the individual sprint. So glad she's retiring on a high!

Another Gold Medal for team GB after Joanna Rowsell, my personal favourite, Dani King and Laura Trott clocked three minutes 14.051 seconds to triumph with a sixth consecutive world record in the three-woman, three-kilometre event.
