GB have given their all in the soccer but it is penalties now

What a shame - they played their hearts out. Korea probably best side though and very impressive with their penalties. :'(

But a phenomenal day for team GB overall!

Half way through now and well on target for a record tally. :claphappy: :laugh: :claphappy:

Congratulations to all involved  :beers: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

May this success continue into the second week.

Well done England hope you get a whole lot more, some thrilling finishes in the Rowing and 10,000 Meter Run.

I must be a traitor as I have been supporting the English teams in everything, must be because our media over here have all the competitors winning gold even before the games started.
Keep on Smiling

We have gone from being a team who might/ought to get a medal to being the team to beat in certain disciplines - and we have consistently delivered the performance required in these events!

After decades of being the gallant losers that came fourth or had some hard luck stories we are now winners. Absolutely brilliant - so proud of them and proud to be a Brit.

Looked at the medal table and shocked to see our great rivals, the Aussies, so far down. Although I don't want them to beat the Brits, I hope they can return to form in the second week and get a gold or two.

Well done team GB. Good to see them in 3rd position. Also good to be beating the Aussies who at present are in 19th place on the medals table. Even the kiwi's are in front of them :laugh3:

Oops - that should be DEMUS :bounce:

The Aussies are sore losers officialy (with humblest apologies to Australian members here of course  ;) ). The Sydney Morning Herald has cleverly, but foolishly combined their own Medal Table with that of New Zealand (who are ahead by virtue of having 3 Golds, against Australia's 1), and stuck that on the medal table under the name Aus Zealand (I kid you not!)

Of course, this is considered an absolute outrage on this side of the Tasman, in fact as a news story is second only to the two New Zealand soldiers killed in Afganistan this week. This is not the first time Australia has tried to claim the glory of a New Zealand victory, quoting Auckland's New Zealand Herald, "After Australia was smashed 4-0 by Germany at the 2010 Football World Cup and New Zealand claimed a historic draw with Slovakia, the Sydney Morning Herald's headline read "Australasia 1 - Slovakia 1".". See pic below:


For the record, New Zealand currently holds 3 Gold and 4 Bronze Medals, with Australia holding the balance.

You can see what the New Zealand Herald had to say about this here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=10825019

They really are soare losers. And stealing another countries glory is very poor sportsmanship in my books.
That's why I have no sympathy for those 'whinging Aussies' who pretty much claimed they would win everything with their 'world class' athletes. Looks like the kiwis and Brits should give them some swimming lessons. ;)

My friend in Australia says the media are absolutely furious with the Aussie swimmers for their poor performances, they were expecting a lot of golds because swimming is like a religion in Australia.

They came out with several excuses including :

1) Social media
2) The other swimmers were using illegal kicks
3) All the best Australian coaches were being paid to coach other country's swimmers
4) The Australian coaches are too soft

Meanwhile saw these on twitter yeaterday :

BREAKING NEWS: Unconfirmed reports circulating that Australia's Olympic team is due to arrive in London a week on Monday.


Hey kids, spelling is important. Look! The difference between won and one: Great Britain have just won gold. Australia have just one gold.   :D

No wonder the Ozzies havn't won anything, clearly they never turned up!!!  :P :claphappy:
