I was hoping we'd get to see the shots he took. Awesome. Thanks for posting it

Here's another funny moment



Also, Costas is an idiot, so I couldn't care less what he thinks of Bolt. The guy is against touchdown celebrations, for christ sake. He's a crotchety old curmudgeon

I'd rather have fun watching Bolt and Blake during their post race photoshoot than some boring faux humble 'aw shucks' athlete
Agreed. Bolt is simply exciting to watch and none of his antics grate on me at all.

All I want is Tony Greig trying to sell me a signed skate during the speed skating.

Bolt gets massive attention for a few days with four year breaks in between and he's the absolute best in the business at what he does. I'm perfectly fine with him being as every bit as cocky as he wants -- he certainly delivers the goods!

Bolt is a star no question. He's only half as egotistic as some of the other fellows running in the 100m, and some of these folk languished in the semis! I like him a lot (although his interest in playing 20/20 cricket is a little annoying).

But I think Jamaica's current excellence over short distances should be celebrated, not just Bolt's.

Cracking Olympics. Some super venues (Lords for Archery in particular!). It wasn't as good as Beijing in my opinion, but engaged me more cause I was only in London just under 2 months ago!

A little frustrated that it was the two busiest weeks of the year in my work so couldn't immerse myself in it as much as I would have liked.

I really enjoyed yesterday's marathon. I run marathons myself (at least 5 workouts a week) and it's tough you know
