Hopefully it'll be postponed to a date when Prince Philip is out of hospital and can attend, so he can pull some racist faces and hurl hilarious insults at people.
But are brive athletes are over there already! They can't wait that long! They'll go slitty-eyed!

Prince Phil waving Eddie the Eagle off on the plane this evening. Geoff Capes and Big Daddy all ready through in the heats

I'm looking forward to the bukkakes. Should be a corker. Although a new Olympic event, it's very popular.

When do we get our first medal in one of the tory events where you need expensive equipment to compete?

Very glad that BBC's cheerleading bubble burst. The sourpusses can't find any excuses this time (heat, tiredness, odd scheduling, doping forrins)

In more positive news, the Women's road race produced the greatest sporting moment of the last decade. Kiesenhofer leading from 0km to finish despite immense Dutch team expecting to win (and they didn't even realise she was still out in front as Annemieke thought she'd won when coming in second).

She's a mathematics post-doc as well, working in a similar field to Pancreas - perhaps they know each other.

Absolutely flattened that Belgian girl in the Judo. Ouch

Women's cycling road race gold won by a total outsider because all the favourites hadn't realised that she was still out front, the last one left from a breakaway she had started right at the very beginning. Wonderful to watch.

I caught about half of the road race and it was absolutely delightful, I'll be pleasantly surprised if I see anything better over the next few weeks.

First GB medal! Bronze in Judo for Ashley Giles.

Thursday

Yeah suddenly got very emotional for the cycling woman I'll never think about again.

Oh and GB got bronze in Judo

mothman

I just kept expecting the Purple Bricks lady to show up.

Also, by my count at least three of our medal prospects have fallen at the final hurdles so far. I'm now thinking that we're going to see a massive drop from the '08/'12/'16 medal tallies, getting back towards our lucky-if-we-got-five-golds period that characterised all the previous Olympics that I can remember.

Chris boring Boardman kept mentioning during the blokes race that they don't have any radios like they're used to, guess there's no pit boards or messages written on the water bottles either

Poobum

Gymnastics and the beam thing, what's with all the arm wafting, hip cocking, and bad dancing? Just do the flips, people only care about the flips.

Love to see Arrogant Jade tonked. BYE BYE.

"wish me family had been there"

No words for her refugee opponent. Fucking Britain Olympic arrogance in a nutshell.

Pod? Pure talent. Rog fucked big time.

Can't take to Pogacar at all. Convinced he's a drugs cheat because I don't like his face. Also hoping to say I knew all along in a couple of decades if it turns out to be true.

Feel a bit sorry for Roglic as well. There was something tragic in the purest sense about him losing the tour last year as his stupid helmet wobbled off his head

I'm not a Pod fan, but unlikely a drug cheat

God. We're going to have this fourth-rate shower of inept cunts inflicted on us forever (or until the next Games in three years time produces a slightly-different cohort of them) - if you watch QoS, which I certainly don't.
