I see the French complained about the "Magic Wheels" that the GB Team were using in the Velodrome - until it was pointed out to them that they were "Mavic Wheels" manufactured in France by Mavic and also used by the French Team...

Don't count your chickens yet everyone. Team GB have 22 well earned golds, however the Russian Federation are now finding form on 10 gold medals earning 6 of those in the last few days.

If I recall, the Russians pipped team GB to the post for 3rd position in Beijing.

There are still 5 days left...........

Hope team GB hold 3rd spot or even some how threaten the USA for 2 nd place.

Good luck team GB :claphappy:

I don't want to put the kiss of death on GB, but we have medals guaranteed in boxing and sailing (we just don't know what colour they will be) and hopefully the Equestrian team might continue their good form.
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

That's alright. Because Team GB are good sports, they will let NZ 'embrace' British gold medals meaning a combined total of 25 Golds compared to a paltry 4 for Australia. This now means NZ are third in the table, well above Australia for a second time in the competition. ;) :D

Seems the New Zealand team are in high demand, as three days ago the Aussie team wanted to use them to boost their own tiny medal tally. ;)
