i forgot to switch to bbc2,
Piece o' piss
Great stuff Vic.
Apart from the Kilo, what events are contested at the World Championships that arent here at the Olympics?
she scares me.
Women's keirin for one which would probably have given VP double gold.
Chris Hoy 3 golds
go hoy!!! 3 golds
managed to switch channels for this one
Any chance that will be included in 2012? The women's track programme is light compared to the men's
Good on Hoy - that was a close race. Please for him - and Jason Kenny is one to watch for the future
Phew, can go get me dinner now.
Looking forward to watching it all when I get home
i'm welling up seeing him hug his family
Yeah emotional stuff. I really like Hoy, seems a right gent.
Well done cyclists, magic.
his dad looks like he'd be fun to go for 10 or 12 beers with
phew glad i am not the only one
the veledrome for 2012 better have a fucking massive capacity
7 golds in 10 events!! astonishing stuff
Always believe in your soul.
You've got the power to know
Always believe in 'cause you are
Glad that you're bound to return
there's something I could have learned.
You're indestructible, always believe in!
Ok- then there needs to be a concerted campaign to have that event instated for 2012.
We need a road race suitable for Cav too.
If there are 50+ medals in the pool to win, we need more events else where too.
Can't think of many areas around London that would cause him too many problems. Nice lack of long steep hills
Hoy, first UK sportsperson to win 3 gold medals at the same Olympics since this man.........
right, work to do. brilliant morning.
will see the BMX when I get in from work..seedings and quals highlights on around midnight on freeview apparently
About 2 in the morning for BMX.
Wednesday 20 August
0200-0548: Men's and women's BMX seeding runs, men's BMX quarter-finals
Thursday 21 August
0200-0418: Women's BMX semi-finals, men's BMX semi-finals, women's BMX final, men's BMX final
The British fella, Liam Philips is expected to go out in the quarters in the mes, the field is stacked, any of 20 could win.
Gievn that they're planning to introduce BMX vert in 2012 I'd expect a cycling event to be lost somewhere like the kilo was this year.
The BMX track is a big project but there's only one event they can hold on it unless they make one up.
Twisted - I was thinking of you when I was watching your girlfriend a little while ago. Hope you didn't pee your pants with all that excitement
Chris hoy very emotional there- what a great morning.
bugger I have some grit in my eye
I was filling up watching him on the podium - and I feel a middle age lady crush coming on
Apart from Chris Newton in the points race, have we actually got any silvers or bronzes on the track where we haven't got the gold too?
Anyone for a cycling 1-2-3 in Sports Personality? We've got Hoy, Wiggins, Pendleton, Romero, Cooke and Cav to choose from.
